A clean, shiny greenhouse


Well, maybe not shiny, but it’s definitely clean. We spent a couple of days emptying it, scrubbing it down and disinfecting it. Then we did the same to all the stands, propagators and lids, plus all the tools that I use in there, and put them back in the greenhouse.

The outside got a quick clean and we started moving all the tubs and grow bags, and removing dead plants.

270316-02There’s plenty of room for starting off seeds. I won’t be growing as much as last year, and I need to make it a lot easier to manage now that I’m working again, but there will definitely be veg as it was brilliant being able to harvest dinner from the garden last year.

270316-04My sowing and potting bench is all set up and I’ve already started getting some seeds in.

270316-03I love seeing the little seedlings come up. I need to make sure I find time to visit the greenhouse every day now to keep an eye on them.

The next job is to finish getting the pots and beds ready,

  1. Everything looks wonderful! I think about gardening every year, but I have no clue. Hubby has planted annuals for me the last couple of years, but I want things that will come back every year, not appetizing to the bunnies, that bloom in different stages of spring and summer. I think I want to give it a go this year, but I will probably back out again šŸ˜‰ Can’t wait to see what is sprouting in your garden šŸ™‚


  2. it looks like a lot less work than last Spring, when you were really having to clear out the jungle.


    • Oh I know. I’d never get that much done now so it’s a good job that it’s only a bit of tidying and cleaning to do. I’m going to try to clear up at the end of the season this year too, but last year I started the new job and lost the plot a bit šŸ˜‰


  3. Wow! That looks fabulous! The idea of being able to harvest your own dinner šŸ˜€ Here we get ridiculously excited when we manage to grow one tomato. One tomato doesn’t go very far in a salad let me tell you šŸ™‚
