My first greenhouse

Posted: 23/01/2015 at 08:31

Ah not good. I broke my sacro iliac and it's in the most inconvenient place when it comes to shifting around! Would she manage with a series of smaller steps or a paving slab type ramp inside? An alternative is to sink the base so you only have a step up / down rather than over so the greenhouse itself is flush to the outside but only you and Mrs F would know if this would suit your situation. 

It might be the greenhouse becomes your private retreat!

No problem Dove; send it over I've some fantastic potato stamps and various coloured paints I'll soon have that paperwork dealt with! 

Get on down Panda there's even free squash involved. Do I spoil my guests or what?! (No biscuits though - wasn't ready to run the allergy gauntlet!) It's the first time we've done anything like this to try and get not just people through the doors but get the museum more welcoming and assessable to younger families. 

I got my contract extended for 12 months this week which means I really need to crack on with my almighty to do list - anyone want to fund the education centre?! It's worth a shot!  I don't think I'll be seeing much of the garden this spring. I might need to find a suitable potted plant to bring into the classroom with me!

Fishy - being a taller lady with a giant of an other half when we move our greenhouses we will be building a brick / breeze block wall to raise the greenhouse up. Disadvantage is that you then have a step to get in and out but does mean there are no height issues. It makes a huge difference and is a much cheaper option!

Morning all!  Today is a day sitting in my nice warm classroom hosting messy play for under 5s. Unfortunately the museum haven't advertised it at all so I might be catching up on my paper work somewhat!

Plenty of snow here.

Looked out the window to see darling oh has parked his car infront of my truck. Because blocking in the 4x4 is of course a sensible idea when you need to go to work in the morning.  Man logic really!

Morning all. Very cold here but the snow stopped with nothing more than a flutter so I don't need to worry about my school visiting us cancelling (I'm driving a random route to work to go past the school to check their road conditions just in case though!)

Looks like we might be getting snow showers all week; means work will be very cold! I do feel for groups visiting us!
