I went from Stinky to Itchy...in less than a week!

This is my greenhouse right now. I have let things go for a while. The plants may or may not get watered lately, but seem to be doing okay just the same.

Today I put the fiberglass insulation the vents along the roof line to help hold the heat in over the winter.
who would have thought that pink fluffy stuff could be so horrible! lol

I went from stinky to itchy in less than a week!


Note to self: wear long sleeves and thick pants to cut and fit fiberglass insulation into greenhouse....also...do this when ALL three kids are at school...."Busy" thinks it is cotton candy and was hanging around like a dirty shirt!
My ears are even itchy! It was a windy day, and fairly nice outside, so I thought I would do what needed to be done. Yes....I was silly not to be more prepared! I am blaming extreme stress for my negligence!
At any rate...I thought I would take some snap shots of the inside of the greenhouse so that I could come in and make a plan of what I want to do in there for the winter. I have always wanted to have a Christmas tree in there...but not sure Christmas is coming this year....so will just make it clean so that I can keep the plants going for the winter...they seemed to have a good time in there last winter...and that makes more room inside the house for us to move about...until the time comes (if it does) for me to plant my seeds!

come on in!

just a few houseplants

Here is the mess I have allowed to grow up...and will be cleaning up this week...so that I can put the winter floor covering down. Which I will probably post too...lol

see the cacti I started from seed two summers ago? they are getting too big and I am nervous to change the pot in case I kill them! (look top shelf on the left)




I started Asparagus ferns from seed last August! Here is one of them.
Okay Hunky Gardener...dazzle me with the name of this plant...all I have come up with from the local garden center is Nico.....what is it? I have started about 30 of them from this plant...it is huge....and healthy, and 2 years old now...I stole a clipping of it from my kids' school ...
Banana plants from seed...if I put them in larger pots they will grow like weeds and the leaves will be huge...last years had leaves two feet wide and 4 feet long!
dirty floors, three year old geranium....lots of mess....I am so embarrassed and disappointed in myself for allowing this to look so bad....

BUT!!!!!!!! I am going to fix it up....maybe add my wicker bench and invite you all for another tour as soon as I am finished putting down the winter floor.....and cleaning it up! I also need to add a few more plants that will benefit from the winter light that is not quite so bountiful in the house ....

see you back here soon...clean smelling and itch free!
