Our Greenhouse

Yesterday the girls and I decided to try our hand at making a greenhouse.  We found these old metal things in the field behind the house.  They were used as a round bale holder but had been broken years ago.

Then we planted our seed and put the metal “thingie” over it.

Then we covered them with plastic.  All of this is recycled material.  The only cost to us was the seeds.  We have never tried anything like this before.  I have attempted to start seeds indoors many different times but always with no success.  They grow too fast and then just die out so we just buy plants already started and use them.  I got this idea from my blogger friend at http://holcombhappenings.wordpress.com/.   Thanks, Cheryl.  We have about 30 days before danger of frost is over for us.  We are hoping our seeds will produce and we will be able to transplant them.  If this does well, I want to start our seeds earlier next year.    Anyway, it was a very nice day yesterday and we had a lot of fun making our greenhouse and planting our seeds. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.
