THIS WEEK I BUILT A GREENHOUSE. Well, to be more correct, Susan (who has worked with me in the garden for many years, for which I am endlessly grateful), built a greenhouse. Want to see her work of art?
Aren’t we clever girls, Susan and I? It was a little cold this last week and I wanted to start some Brussels sprouts, so we improvised. Susan built this little greenhouse to tuck them into, keeping them moist and warm, while they germinated. I set it on a bright windowsill, opening the seal a bit when it steamed up, and things are looking good after only a few days. Now they’re spending their days outside in strong light, and coming in for the evenings till they grow a little stronger. The price was right, by the way, and no building permits were required.
