But the greenhouse was another story. There were just too many other things to do beside undertake a big project of moving the greenhouse. But as we are planning our garden for next year, and wanting to do LOTS more vegetable production, my hubby has been thinking about getting the greenhouse moved to our new location. HOORAY!!!
This last year was a challenge driving back and forth to tend to the greenhouse. But, like I said, I'm in town everyday anyway. So I would head to town, work in the greenhouse, go to the old house and gather some more items to move to new house, then head to shop to work for the afternoon. But as the days got warmer in the spring, the quicker the greenhouse heated up for the day, cutting into the time that I wanted to spend in there. Also, many times I would disappear to the greenhouse after supper and work for awhile in the cool of the evening. It was a great time to transplant, giving the tender young seedlings the cool of the night to recover before being heated by the sun the next day. But after completing supper and cleaning up the kitchen, I seldom wanted to drive back into town to work in the greenhouse for an hour or so.
The other thing that I really missed in the greenhouse this past year was my cats. We had kind of an established routine of heading out to the greenhouse in the morning. Our 2 cats - Puffy and Rosie would trail along behind me out to the backyard. I would get busy working in the greenhouse and they would get busy chasing bugs or toads or finding a comfy spot to nap in the sunshine. I really missed their company this past year as they currently reside at the new house and I really didn't think that they wanted to be loaded up into the van just for a ride back to the old 'hood.

It seems to me that the worst part of any big project like this is GETTING IT STARTED! So now it's started and it's progressing. I can't wait to have it all together and really start planning all of the things we want to plant for next spring! Seed catalogs.......HERE I COME!!!!!
