Yesterday evening turned out to be quite blowy, so I was in and out of the house putting poles back in place. Thus, it was with some trepidation that I went to bed, in case the greenhouse was no longer standing when I woke up this morning.
Thankfully, it was still intact when I woke up to brilliant sunshine. And apart from a pot of ice cream sticks, which I use as labels for plantings, nothing was out of place.
I was equally eager to see the greenhouse when I got home this evening. For one thing, I was curious to see whether the inside temperature was higher than outside. I was also curious to see how the trays of seedlings were faring, especially after wrapping them with bubble wrap yesterday.
The temperature was rather disappointing – no different from outside, it seemed. Perhaps it is because the plastic cover doesn’t reach the ground? So, I’m consoling myself with the fact that it makes a previously uncultivatable part of the garden more productive one way or another and gives me cover to potter about.
As for the trays of seeds, they hadn’t dried out. On the other hand, there was condensation under the bubble wrap, so I’m wonder if this is something I need to get rid of or leave in order to maintain moisture?
Whatever the case may be, I am pleased to have these ponderables to keep my mind active…..
