I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

Fat Fruit Friday # 4

Oh, I am such a dreamer sometimes.

I imagined Daniel delivering my Fat Fruit Greenhouse...
and me swanning into it, with armloads of pots and plants.
The plants were already large, lush and dripping with flowers and fruit.


The reality is a lot more down and dirty...
and there aren't even any plants yet!

First off, I had to cement the legs in so the greenhouse stays put.

Then I put bricks under the edge of the walls and laid a path...
mulch over newspaper.

Bubba, helped with the paper laying, of course.

The path will go all the way around the greenhouse... 
for ease of maintenance and as a buffer to encroaching grass.

I have decided to go with just one of the three tiered benches 
at this stage with an in ground garden bed along the north wall.  

It bodes well for my future greenhouse gardening success, 
that the grass inside is already much longer than outside.

I think my dream will come true
but it may take a little while.


  1. yeah everyone forgets to tell you dreams do come true but ya gotta do the hard yards first..but its all looking good and all part of the process and it won't be long and you will be sitting amongst all sorts of hanging delights

  2. Patience is the No.1 virtue for the gardener. "No Pain, No Gain", they say...

  3. Looking fab Hazel! That's a great set up you have for the green house. Kelli
