I inherited a greenhouse.
My brother & sister-in-law decided to set sail
and move onto a yacht down in Daytona Beach FL
which, although very large, really doesn't lend
itself to a greenhouse,
especially when there is fresh crab to be eaten on demand.
We selected a site by the garden for now.
Erected the sturdy frame.
Added the plastic covering
and rolled up the doors and windows
to let the air through until we are ready to use it.
It will get very good morning sun and then
hopefully protect the plants from the stronger
afternoon sun once the temperatures warm up.
They had it for several years so there are some
repairs to be made around the zippered doors.
I think I'll get velcro and go around the entire opening,
then put new plastic on the ends. I believe JoAnn's
has material suitable for this.
Tom is going to make whatever shelving I need
and is even thinking about using the frame
to build something more permanent
once we determine where the best location is.
Now I'll need to read up on what to do and when to start
planting for zone 5/6 (St Louis outskirts).
Suggestions are welcome!
