We are rebuilt.
« on: March 28, 2017, 12:19 »
It's whole again - mostly give or take some gaffa tape  ::) .  I've used the spare glass, recycled the larger and uncracked panes and pinched the glass from the lean-to and I've managed to re-glaze the bottom GH  :)

I've been struggling to find any enthusiasm to grow stuff this year, hopefully having 1 GH back in working order out of the 3 will help. I'll either need to buy more glass or get creative with the tape to fix the top GH though.   :(
Trying to escape suburbia, where the trees come down and the fences go up.

Hope you found your mojo for this year.

I lost 2 greenhouses (8x8 and 18x8) in the storm of 2014 and  replaced them with a single 10x20ft polytunnel which was infinitely cheaper. I still have about 10 sheets of greenhouse glass but no-one seems to want them.
Personally I wouldn't go back to a greenhouse. I've had much better growing and successes with my polytunnel.
I was put on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things; right now I am so far behind I will never die.

That was back in March Aunty  :ohmy: I've bought another 8x6 since then - admittedly just to get the glass.  ::)

I'll be having a greenhouse rethink at the end of the year though as it's been another unproductive season.
