This old greenhouse is gettin' shaky
This old greenhouse is gettin' old
This old greenhouse lets in the rain
This old greenhouse lets in the cold

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. I spent a very wet day in October last year dismantling an old greenhouse, I got it home and was then tasked with the challenge of putting it back together again. It started with digging and pouring foundations and then constructing a brick base and filling the planting areas with compost and soil. Then came reassembling the framework and fixing it to the base. Finally, cleaning and fixing all the panes of glass in place. It was a long project, but with the end results very worthwhile and low cost. Good as new, very much looking forward to the growing season ahead.
