Well, it seems the skies are starting to clear and despite the mornings being chilly, spring is undoubtedly on the way. So, what are everyones' plans for the coming warmer months?

Personally, I have a heap of seed that will be sowed...

Yes, Spring is certainly here, even if it's "unofficially" ! Quite a few plants in flower out in the greenhouse at the moment too.
First lot of seed has been in a few weeks and is mostly up now with much more yet to be sown....

Well for me it's just a matter of putting the covers on a couple of old greenhouses I've been fixing up.

I know they are a bit rough but you should see what I started with. Besides I like the idea of recycling. In this case it's a bit of an envoronmental opportunity, that's a fancy way of saying I get to be a cheap skate while claiming I am avoiding impacting the environment. This is a before photo.

Then a bit of bench rehabilitation and... let the repotting begin!
There is about a hundred and fifty meters of bench frame under here...I wonder how many snakes?!...

ENVYENVY ENVY!! Id love to have that much land and all those old frames and some hard yakka to make it all worthwhile, you are a lucky man. now I feel my pissy greenhouse project was all for nothing. Cant wait to see a few years from now when there full of plants sales.

Well I only rent them so don't be too envious, and as for hard yakka well I've had enough of that, I levelled and rolled the floor by hand and that is a bad idea on over 600square meters of heavy clay, not to mention doing the job all on my own makes for some lonely hours. But I feel now that spring is in the air all the work will be worth it and I can finally try my hand at being a nurseryman...
And trust me, any greenhouse project is worthwhile, your one leaves my first attempts for dead.

Ahh... the greenhouse pics finally make it to the web!

This is one project that has to be seen "in the flesh" to be truly appreciated.

Well... on the plus side the snakes will keep any rats and mice at bay.
