Tell Me, Tell Me Tuesday
Moving on... last year hubby built me a greenhouse. I used it. I tried hard. But i swore it was way too hot- ya know, sometimes you need a good give'er year...to sort out the kinks?! While i am a firm 'research and follow a plan' type, just letting things happen was how i needed to learn and progress. But NOT this year...
Last year's greenhouse production of mismanaged results drove me cuckoo! Learning experience.OR.not. This year i demanded windows and screen and ventilation- the door open thing was not working. And while you're at it, plz throw in an area to hang my tools and shelving for even more insane growing madness! Mowahahahah! I cannot fail two years in a row!
Obliging hubby (thank you hun, love you!), built greenhouse windows! And the storage area and the shelving (all with recycled wood!). I am so blessed. Since the big digger was on-site, i decided that maybe (oh just maybe, wink wink), he could also dig up my veggie garden and make it bigger? And bigger it IS!
Unfortunately, the bigger garden means a LOT of me picking rocks before i can get some real dirt in here! If you aren't familiar with Alberta and it's ROCKY Mountains, then here is a picture to demonstrate just a little bit of the madness i still need to endure in this project:
I've already been picking this patch...
Tell Me, Tell Me...do you have a veggie/herb garden?? What fantastic things do you grow? I am Zone 3- last year successes were Mesclun, Zucchini, Carrots. Has anyone ever grown Horseradish?? I REALLY want to try growing Horseradish, but have heard horror stories--now i need tips!
