4th week of March, 2016: a greenhouse!

green house mostly done

We’ve been mulling over plans for greenhouses of various different flavors for the past few months–something to house our seedlings and our goats–and we finally reached the building stage this week. It’s made of a recycled carport frame, covered with a sheet of poly.

Half of the greenhouse is a shelter for the goats.

The other half will be filling up with seedlings over the next month. Water barrels help to maintain a more constant temperature, storing heat during the day as the sun shines on them and releasing it at night.
