Last year we bought a cheap plastic 10×15 greenhouse on Amazon, it lasted approximately 72 hours until a wind storm knocked it down. So we planted everything directly from seed , which was very late in the season, that set us back big time, but we still had a decent harvest.
This year made sure we’re going into 2022 with a sturdy Greenhouse that won’t blow over.
I did purchase pressure treated for the sill plate and pine for the roof trusses, I just didn’t have time to mill the wood for the trusses.
Used Solexx greenhouse covering, its a double walled 5mm polycarbonate for the roofing and the walls, bottom has steel roofing to protect from the insane winds and deep snow.
Winters has settled in and working outside you need layers…lots of them when it’s -25.
Last August finishing up the pasture fencing.
The posts about 11 feet apart, on a good day I can put in about 75-80.
They go down in about 2’ take approximately 30 sec to a minute, the T-post pounder is a game change changer.
A few months ago I heard some kittens in the garage.
We ended up rescuing three feral kittens and found a home for one of them
This is Georgie he’s taken quite well to hanging out with human beings now.
He’s a real Wild Maine Coon…see the M in his facial Markings.
Summers come and gone
Time to prepare for winter
Interesting video on foraging for “wild carrot”
Our greenhouse blew down this year so we had a tough time getting started so we ended up planting seeds directly into the ground this year and now things are starting to pop up.
Its been a late start but we’re getting good rain this year, we use Straw to cover the plants for weed suppression and also to help with water retention. It also adds organic matter once it breaks down.
We planted in Organic compost since the garden plot has not been able to sustain plants without it since the soil is lacking vital nutrients. This method works well as we can do row, raised beds, and spot plant vegetables.
Here’s the beginning or lambing season 2021
