The Greenhouse


 A quick blog this week to show what is going on in my Greenhouse. I left planing any seeds till the end of March and over a few nights had to bring them in the house because of a frost we had. You might notice  gas green house heater in one shot but I found out it uses a lot of gas so it was easier to bring them in. I'm going to try and see if I can find a cheaper way of heating the greenhouse when we have a frost so watch this space because I have found something.

 About ten or so days after planing the seeds they were coming up and at the present time I have thinned them out. I will only be keeping a few so the rest will be given away. The empty milk bottle containers you see will be making pots for them

These are various flowers I'm trying to grow

The little green shoots here are Cos Lettuce, they will need  bit of thinning out yet

 The big leaves are cucumbers

and  these are another pair I potted on. The shoot in the foreground is the sole sunflower from some I got at a friends funeral. I grow it in his memory. There are some more growing in another tray. That's it hope you enjoyed what I am trying to do I'll come back to it in the future

Take Care

  1. Here you go again! I enjoy watching your garden last year and look forward to watching once again! I confess to being a bit jealous - the deer find anything we try to grow and make short shrift of it!
    Thank you for sharing at

  2. Nice seeing all the little sprouts coming up. We're having cold gray rainy weather here, but still hoping all the seeds we planted the other day will come up. Ah spring!

  3. You're doing well with your seeds and seedlings, I'm looking forward to doing this also once I buy a house.

  4. It's always an exciting - and sometimes frustrating - time, waiting for seeds to germinate. I hope your plants all do well.

  5. That is so wonderful. I look forward to seeing how they grow. Beautiful that you are growing a sunflower in the memory of your friend. I keep my seed trays on top of the washer-dryer in the house, that my greenhouse at the moment :D


  6. So lovely to see green shoots on the grow.
    The cucumbers have really taken off.
    Enjoy the week...

  7. You certainly keep busy with your garden. I can't wait to see what you have in mind to keep the greenhouse warm :)
