Greenhouse Tales

Thank you all for sharing your gardening stories with me on how you handle 

challenging plants, unpredictable Weather, climate changes and poor 

gardening soil.

I so enjoyed reading each and every comment and found them very helpful-so 

please keep them coming!

We live in North Texas where gardening soil is not great, space is limited, we 

are on constant water restrictions and our weather is erratic and hot in 

the Summer. 

To help out with the conditions which Mother Nature has given us- we have 

purchased a small, very reasonable priced and  functional Hobby Greenhouse

I ordered my Greenhouse online and it arrived in a box. 

Can you believe it began in such a simple manner and blossomed into such a 

nifty structure? (Big thanks to my dear Husband!)

A few things which I have learned about purchasing a Greenhouse-

1.Make sure it comes with shelves or at least provides a link on where to 

order them.

Can you believe my Greenhouse had nary a shelf-hum...

It did in the picture-sold separately, neglected to mention that and for a 

handsome price. 

Home Depot and hubby to the rescue-really isn't selling a Greenhouse without

shelving like selling a car without seats?

Oh, well we have moved on and even have some sprouting going on-see 

those cute radishes, we love them in our evening salads.

Most Hobby Greenhouse are made out of clear-as-glass polycarbonate-

offering thermal insulation, 100 % UV protection, aluminum galvanized steel

frames, roof vent and rain gutters, and magnetic door.

2- You will need to anchor your greenhouse in place.

Hobby Greenhouses are super light and need  to be anchored one way or 

another. Our Greenhouse came with some stakes to anchor it in the ground. 

Because of limited space we could not put our Greenhouse on the lawn-so the 

stakes were of no use to us.

Instead we built a wooden base from 4 x 4's and attached them to the frame 

of the Greenhouse with screws.  (First photo shows this)

I am enjoying and loving every moment in my Greenhouse, can't wait to

start planting those tender plants!

Inspirational Thursday-Country Roads

Do you remember Country Roads,

by John Denver? 



Well, I had the opportunity to explore 

very similar roads to those with our 

daughter Rebecca and our granddaughter 


They do not live in

 West Virginia, but they do live  


Acres upon acres of cornfields which meet  

seemingly endless horizons. 

Sweet earthy smells of fertile soil.

Creeks filled with abundant water.

Livestock grazing in gentle pastures.

I left the confines of the city far behind.

Blinking lights, horns blaring, engines 

idling, not here, not now. 

Bull Frogs croaking, crickets singing,  

mooing, neighing, comforting sounds of 


Soothing, calming, quiet, restful.  

Precious time spent with precious family.

Have you traveled down any Country Roads 

this Summer?
