Taking Advantage of the Weather

If you are like me you’ve been scanning the forecast trying to plan out every possible moment you can be outside in the garden! Around here Saturday is supposed to be pretty nice with scattered clouds and no rain coming in until late. And I can’t forget to mention the big 70 that has appeared in the temperature predictions! Since the weather is set to be favorable I’ve designated my spare time to the greenhouse garden shed – I’ve just got to get this thing finished! I dropped the kids off by their grandparent’s house this past Thursday (after signing the oldest one up for kindergarten, she’s growing fast!) and spent the day putting the siding on the back of the greenhouse. I’m close to being finished with the siding and have only the gables and a few spots on the sides to cover.

My target this weekend is the inside. It’s a mess, too many pieces of wood just laying around. So here’s my Greenhouse Garden Shed work plan:

  • Clear out all the leftover plywood from siding the greenhouse.
  • Measure and find appropriate size pieces of plywood to cover non-glass walls on the inside of the greenhouse garden shed.
  • Build the first of several plant holding benches.
  • Install some old cabinets for storage.
  • Plant potatoes – oh wait, not in the greenhouse, in the garden!

As usual I never have enough time to do it all but I’ll report back on Monday with what I actually managed to finish.

  • Refreshing The Mailbox Garden – A little mulch goes a long way! I expanded the mailbox garden few feet in either direction making a much better sized area for a garden.

  1. Hope you get it all done. It's grey and wet here this weekend. Not very inspiring. But finally the temperatures have started to climb here too – night time as well as day time.

  2. It is snowing here, so I went out and bought lots of flowers!


  3. Sun shinning for the most part. A beautiful day to garden.

  4. Sounds like you've got your work well planned, Dave. We had a wonderfully warm, SPRING day today, exceptionally nice for March in Nova Scotia. Good luck with your projects.
