My Green House

This year I am going big with my tomatoes and hot peppers......I I made myself a mini greenhouse for them. Because of the rain and not so hot Summers I have decided to try something new this year. I went to Home Depot and bought some tubing, rebar, clamps and some plastic. At first it was hard to work with the was a three ring circus between my husband and I putting it together, but we did it. I housed only my tomatoes and my peppers. We had a big storm the other day and it has been raining hard and it is still standing! We dun good! 
Four tomato plants and five peppers.

Mini greenhouse. The plastic Tee Pee in the front is
covering my green bean plants. It is still too cold for them.

Maggie's pumpkin plants. She planted the seeds inside and I just
put them out. Covering them because it is too cold. I also planted a few
more seeds. Hopefully we will get the girl some pumpkins this year!

A view of my radishes that came up already! Also, red romaine lettuce.

Oh How Time is Flying By

My pansies and primrose I planted in a big tub sitting on my  
antique patio table. Love!

My shelf with shells and rocks. The old cast iron kettle was my great grandmother's.

My Angel ivy my friend Mary gave me. It was
just a small start when she gave it to me.

My salad container turned into a mini greenhouse.
Pumpkin and green beans were up in just a few days.

Canvas artwork I made for myself. Blue beach glass
and dahlia petals.

Spiral rock garden. I planted carrots inside and
lettuce all around the outside. I will add photos
of this again later on when it has sprouted.

I saw this on well as the spiral rock
garden idea.  Look
on my Green Thumb board for more garden tips.
