Above is my greenhouse, gratefully received from my Mother-in-law. But with great sadness I had to take it down today. The winds have been simply getting too strong for it. I noted last week that I was having issues with the wind being funnelled around my garden now the solid fence is up… Well it’s also been battering the greenhouse.
The bottom is constantly getting lifted and because the door does not close all the way to the bottom the wind gets underneath it and has damaged the zip. Not only that but the bottom is constantly getting lifted thus tearing the bit tucked underneath. And, because of this, I don’t think I could easily repair it if the winds stay as they are. *sigh* B-(
The reason why I gave up on it today was because today also saw me and the missus going to B&Q and seeing a picnic table on sale. Well… We have wanted one for ages but didn’t have room for it. This was the catalyst on my giving up on the greenhouse.
Now, don’t get me wrong… I was very grateful for it when I got it and it was a great help when I used it. I have also kept all the bits so that if I change the garden around or find somewhere else to put it, it can go back up… Although it will need some patching to repair the wind damage. B-)
So now I have this…
In time the patch will either be flagged, matted and chipped or I will but some turf. I have yet to decide. I like the flag idea. If nothing else I will have somewhere for the plant pots!
Speaking of pots…
I had a few! I threw out all these and ended up keeping only these from the masses I had stored in the greenhouse. I seem to be a bit of a pot hoarder. >.>
