Finally got the Enterprise cleaned up.
(Waffle Iron just looks like Star Trek Enterprise with those handles, so....)
My last trip to GIRO... yabba dabba do!!!
The greenhouse is framed in. When we were at Home Depot we grabbed 6 mil vapour barrier.... fortunately our landlord commented and after a bit of research we found the right stuff but it won't get here until sometime Monday to Thursday, so there she sits.... waiting.
She's a decent size 9' x 12' and I'm planning to put some 55 gallon jugs of water in there to keep her warm in spring and fall -- potentially also winter, but we'll see. There is still a bit of trees left around it so not sure winter is an option, but.....
The ground cover arrived Wednesday.
So here's the thing about the ground cover... I watch what I call 'the homies' on YouTube. Sarah and Kevin at Living Traditions Homestead (hence, the homies). As always, when I find a channel I like I start at the beginning... which is often a good idea... LOL
So a few years ago the homies bought this ground cover which allows the ground to breathe, water through but kills all of the weeds. The first year, when putting in tightly planted items they burned (that's how to create a hole as the fabric is very thick and woven) large and long holes then decided afterwards that that wasn't really the best option so the next year they left a 4" gap between sheets and that worked great - or so I thought...
As our ground cover arrived the day before a weeks worth of solid rain was due, we hurriedly put it down and I got the onion bulbs planted as they were 5 days behind schedule at that point... that was Wednesday, last night (Thursday) as I'm still progressing through the homies videos, they remarked that the 4" gap is not the best option but to make smaller elongated holes spaced roughly 3" apart.... aaargh. So now we'll have to take up the onion bulbs (fortunately that is all I got planted) and reset our ground cover to eliminate the gaps.
I had been so proud of myself.
More will be going down but we just needed to get the gap for the onions in at the time... leave it to me. I told Brad it was his fault because he always teases me for watching so many videos each day and if he hadn't I'd have seen that video and not made the mistake.... sensible, right?! LOL We are also going to churn the back left corner there in the pic to make room for a 4th sheet which the rototiller missed.
This same ground cover will also be put down in the greenhouse before anything else goes in there. We are 'Super Excited'!!! :D
