Growing Green

One of the things I want to do at this new house is to grow veggies now we have a garden; part of this includes a greenhouse for the obvious suspects – tomatoes, peppers and chillies – so with this in mind Jean-Luc and I (mainly Jean-Luc) spent the latter half of our holiday week after Easter sorting out the base for said greenhouse.

This is where it's going - next to the summerhouse at the bottom of the garden.

The trenches for the sleepers which the greenhouse will sit upon and the sleepers that will go in them.
The sleepers were originally all 8 foot long and Jean-Luc cut two of them down to 6 foot with a handsaw! My hero.

The path dug out and the edging in place.  All we need to do now is break up the base soil and get the greenhouse up.  
The greenhouse arrives on Friday, just in time for us to spend the May bank holiday weekend putting it up.
This has all happened due to the wonderful Jean-Luc who has worked like a Trojan and done a fantastic job of building this foundation.  It's amazing watching a man build something from scratch; having the skills to do this - even more so when you know his day job is desk jockeying in IT management. Guess that's why I love him.
