I learnt a lot of new swear words
Ours was a replacement for a homemade rickety thing that we inherited with the house-got everybody 15 or so years ago or so to give me money for Christmas -went off to B & Q with my dosh-took two weekends a lot of bolting -and unbolting when something was the wrong way round -(reading a diagram with no written instructions).
The thing is having done one-it is so satisfying you want to do another one.
Congratulations Tilley - fun times ahead! This is just my third year of growing in a greenhouse and it is my pride and joy. I have been able to get decent tomato crops at last without the dreaded blight getting them. I also grow lots and lots of chillies cucumbers and herbs and also start off all my other veg in there before planting out.
We prepared the base for our greenhouse ourselves but we had professionals erect it for us!
Tilley, get yourself one of those baby monitors that has a long range and a parent monitor that you can pop onto your belt. Then when LO is a bit older (and you've had some sleep) you can pop out there for half an hour or so whilst bump is asleep.
For the first 6 weeks all you will want to do is sleep, though. Good luck with your new arrival (and the greenhouse too!!)
My first was a cold frame, had plenty of fun planting in it. I have just bought for the first time a pop up metal frame plastic covered one, not expensive, not stunning and probably not big enough, but lets see what happens this year. I also just had a birthday and got all gardening gifts (including a paint your own gnome) from my friends and family which shows that they know me so well.
Hallo Tilley, this article in todays Daily Telegraph might be of interest to you:
