I thought I’d take today’s post to show you the current state of my greenhouse!
Caution…the contents of this post caused this Tootsie a lot of anxiety and some tears. (I’m ok now though! Ha-ha)
The move is inevitable…and a greenhouse is a must in my world. There are restrictions in the new house, and things are running a bit behind. Thus, a decision was made. I will take as much of this greenhouse as I possibly can…and use it again until the time comes when I can build a bigger one.
The yard at the house where I am moving is not as large as this one is, so a bigger greenhouse is really not an option. The season has changed to winter, and time is of the essence…so I think that doing just what I have been for now is a good idea. I also am not living there yet…and it is three hours away from me…so being there to oversee a new style go up would be difficult!
So…we take the greenhouse down.
First I emptied it all out…took the blinds and all the shade screen down.
YOU BOYS BE CAREFUL WITH MY GREENHOUSE!!!!!!
Then the ‘men’ got to work on the plexi walls and all the screws that are holding it together…My 12 year old son was so excited to help out. He really is is mom’s boy…Loves his power tools too! hahaha
Before long…the bare frame was all that remained…the roof beams are already gone and the plexi was all moved aside to make room for more dismantling to get done.
It was not a good day in this Tootsie’s world…I was very emotional about taking my space apart. Seeing it all laying on the grass was so hard to look at. Even though I know it will all be back up in a few weeks…it was still a difficult thing to say goodbye to it standing where it was.
BUT…Tootsie put her big girl panties on…and worked up quite a sweat…
The greenhouse doesn’t seem quite so big when you put it all in the trailer now does it? I am actually kind of surprised it took up less than 1/2 of the trailer. hahaha…
It’s all loaded up…and ready to head to the new place…I just hope we remember what goes where! haha..
The yard will now have just a patio that is 12x20 feet big…and a gas line that the new people can put a heater on if they want to. It is a nice big space for a party!
My yard sure does look big and lonely without the greenhouse now doesn’t it?
Just is NOT Tootsie’s Space anymore.
I already miss my greenhouse. It is my safe place…where I go to take the edge off all of the stresses in life…I can’t wait to get the next one up!
I better get going…that greenhouse is not going to build itself you know! Off to better things…new challenges and a lot of work!
I will be able to begin to share photos of everything very soon!!!
I hope I will see you all on Friday for the Big Flaunt!!!
Until Next Time…Happy Gardening!
