The most exciting thing happening right now at My Sweet Cottage is the addition of a cute little greenhouse. It’s about 95% completed and I will be adding to this page as things progress.
But here is what’s happened so far: In Greenhouse on the Brain, I talked about why I have always dreamed of having a greenhouse.
Then in late fall of 2014, my husband, Chris, and his friend, Bruce, began the construction of our own adorable little Sunglo lean-to greenhouse.
The interior still needed to be completed, but in the meantime, my brother gave us these great greenhouse lights that he made himself.
Then in late-winter of 2015, Chris found time to install the shelves and we were able to start using the greenhouse. Check out Late Winter in the Greenhouse for a little tour.
I also posted a little how-to in case you have never started your own seeds indoors and want to give it a try.
Things heated up in the greenhouse in April of 2015, so I made some Pretty Burlap Shades to keep the plants happy.
And in May of 2015, Chris installed a sink that uses recycled rainwater.
In summer of 2016, I looked back over the past seasons and shared what I had grown, protected, or overwintered in my greenhouse.
And in late summer of 2016, we finally found a way to pretty up the ugly pressure-treated wood foundation. Now the greenhouse looks so solid and finished!
