The big pop-up greenhouse weekend!!

I haven't posted in awhile... It has been
busy with the end of school and few other

Today I feel things have finally settled.
I am back to my regular schedule of studying
and house work. After a few hours of working
on my projects for school, I will take a break
and put up a pop-up greenhouse.

Doesn't that sound fun!! LOL!!

I have always wanted to grow my own
vegetables and really haven't had a space
to do. When I saw this pop-green house I
thought that this might be a good solution.

It seems I have thing for pop-ups lately.
Just last week I bought a pop-up doggie
hut. My little doggie has to be near me
and some how ends up in my bed at night.
I don't mind this but hubby isn't keen. LOL!

So I bought him a pop-up doggie hut. I place
him in it near my bed. Works like a charm.
Everyone is happy with the situation.

Anyway, back to the pop-up greenhouse........

I don't know much about growing veg.
I have even killed a few plants in my day...
Thank goodness hubby does know all
about these things from his past life
as a garden nursery manager.

What do I have for the greenhouse so far?

1 cucumber plant with lots of yellow
flowers on it :)

2 tomato plants (hubby said I bought
dead plants, but I am keeping my fingers
crossed that they perk up)

1 small orange tree (says it is for the house?)

plus pots and dirt to repot. Hehe! I am so

Anything else I can grow in my greenhouse???

I have popped it up and spiked it down.
However, we will move it closer to the shed
to help protect from the wind.... I would hate
for my little house to get caught by the wind
and end up in the next village!

Wish me luck! I am living the veggie garden
dream..... even if it was one of my dreams for
our cottage. I have a few new thoughts on all
that. I will be sure and share them with you later.


It is 4th of July weekend!! Hurray!

I love to celebrate the 4th and I love
and miss my Country! I will celebrate
from here with friends and family
and maybe even some fireworks. :)

Hmmm, I wonder if we all can fit in
my greenhouse for some shade? LOL!

It will definitely be a grand weekend!!

Have a great one! Hugs~kimme

Pics of the greenhouse to follow later today.....
after I move it. :)

I should be taking pics today after I repot some more tomato plants.

Barry I bought the greenhouse at a store in town. However, they have a web address where you can purchase the greenhouses online. :)

It sure is a great/easy way to have
a greenhouse without all of the trouble.

Here is the web address..... www.flowerhouses.com
