Spring Dreaming in the Home Greenhouse

Maybe the best part about having a home greenhouse is the fact that spring comes early each year.  In this post we do some Spring Dreaming in the Home Greenhouse

It Won’t Be Long

I will admit the forecast of highs only reaching the low 20’s and lows in the single digits for this weekend has made me a bit scared to think of my greenhouse project. The thought of losing my blooms I have been wintering over is enough to make me lose sleep. It was a wonderful treat to wake to the sunshine and a greenhouse with summer temperatures.

How it works

As the sun gets higher in the sky it is the perfect time to begin seed starting.

Here comes the sun to wake up the seedlings!

I swear I could see the herbs reaching for the sunshine and the lettuce put on another centimeter between photos.

Little Critters

I love sharing my excitement of growing year-round with my critters.  I often let them come into the greenhouse with me on days it is sunny and I am working away.  We all love the sunshine and promise of spring coming soon.

Seymore is reminded of summer by enjoying the water from the well in the watering can.

I am posting this wonderful reminder that spring is just around the corner.  I hope you all will take advantage of all the seeds that are available this time of year at your local nursery centers and grab them up before the good ones are gone!   You won’t regret giving seed planting a try… trust me!

Let’s Connect

I hope this spring bloom a dear friend of mine gave me warms you up this winter afternoon. Be sure to connect with me by commenting on my contact page. 

Enjoy your Friday Friends!

  2. Brenda Brenda Brenda – Your unbridled passion for what you’re doing shines thru. Looking at your lush, intimate gh pics feels like a sentimental journey to me. back in the day I took care of multiple greenhouses all by my lonesome and planted out about an acre of plants each spring -when I was doin Canada’s first pick your own. Anyway – it’s clear you have a love, a reverence for your work here. It won’t be long indeed. Can’t wait till Spring!

    That last picture made me feel SO good! I’m just in from walking the pups in the newly fallen snow and this warmed me right up!
    Congrats on the new start with the blog!

    • We are using a recycled gas heater from a RV. Because the greenhouse is attached to a small barn and the floor is a few inches of stone and tile the heater hardly runs. We have only used about $20 in propane gas January and Feb. 2010. I am in Zone 5b.
      Thank you for stopping by Catalina!

    • Be sure to check out EBAY for greenhouses. YOU would be surprise what you find. We found ours which is a Gardener Supply product retails at $3,000 ( 4 years old) and we bought it off of an older couple who didn’t have time to use it for $350! NOW that is recycling at its’ best!
