Greenhouse is up!

We finally have the greenhouse up. Just in time for hot weather.
We got the plastic on the 'long term' project of the hoop house. You can see in the last photos they are just beginning to lace it with rope which holds it all together. On our windy, rocky, site Brent had to dig out all 48 legs and concrete they into place. We are almost there, so we expect to have sunflowers and dahlias late into the year.











March 31 Wedding Photos

Just a few photos of the bouquets for a very sweet family. It's alittle hard to see in my non-professional photos but I used double and single varieties of yellow and white daffodils.
