Greener in Greenhouse

I got my greenhouse yesterday, but waited till this morning to put it together. I had an awful case of sinuses after we got back from river rafting and it didn't go away until today.

This is the end results! I haven't done any planting yet, but plan to do a little tomorrow morning.

The greenhouse fits on my deck perfectly like it was meant for that corner.

Check it out!

I've decided to start a new garden in my front yard. There's an area beside my driveway that's been an eye sore for a long time - the sun bores down on that spot. I think it's time to dig up the grass, fence the area, and start a patch of garden. Now I just need to find the energy to do it all...

Before I forget, my Seed to Seed book arrived Thursday in the mail. I've started reading the first chapter and I'm getting excited about heirloom gardening and saving my own seeds year after year.

This morning, I ordered a used book off of on Common Sense Pest Control - I really have a problem with pesticides, killing off needed bees, and other creatures, so I'm looking for NATURAL remedies. I hate the thought of killing a poor frog or lizard because I went nuts with poison in the yard.

Speaking of bees... I think we have a honey bee nest nearby. I'm finding honey bees in our pool everyday. I guess this is a good thing as I'm sure going to need them with all this gardening!

At the library, I found a video about honey bees and watched it with Pamela. I honestly have more respect for these creatures now. It's little things like this that brings mockery to the evolutionists who deny their Creator. I can see God's handiwork in every creature outside, to the simplicity of a tiny leaf!

I love your greenhouse and you have some very nice plants in it. Hope it all works out well for you. In fact, in your area it should give you a big head start over the winter months.

While I'm thinking of it, Midland TX was bad for squash bugs and if you find any on your squash plants, turn the leaves over and look for clusters of eggs, if you find some paint them with fingernail polish. A much safer way of preventing them from hatching then spraying.
Believe it or not I found 2 nest on my zucchini this morning. Very rare for my area.
If you don't kill the eggs they will hatch and suck the life out of your plant.
