Greenhouse Rebuild - Part 2(a)

After taking some time off due to weather & planning, we decided to revisit the greenhouse project.

First came the walk on the beach & now comes the hard work...

The footings required leveling & staking & with a bit of ingenuity & brute strength, the raised bed boards were installed at a width of 3 feet.

Notice how the water barrels are slightly out of balance? Well, we had to fix that as well... actually, they were sitting on pieces of wood we required for the framing, so I filled as many buckets & barrels & the duck pond & watered the rhubarb & deck pots & then had to watch the rest of that glorious FREE water run down the ditch...

The rains that will return shortly, will fill them up pretty quick & it was probably a good thing too as there were lots of mosquito larvae in the barrels already...
