When I Start My Greenhouse

Debbie FrancisThe closer spring gets the more excited I get. Come the first week of February, I get all happy inside, and that’s when I start l cleaning out and sprucing up my greenhouse. Now I know I could use the greenhouse all winter long, but my heat source is wood. Well, small farm and small woods, or buy wood. I’m on a fixed income so I use my greenhouse until late November and stop until the third week of February.

Now comes the good old cleaning and refreshing the dirt. Good old compost, mixed with fresh garden or potting soil, and turn it over a few times. That seems to work wonders for me. Then I spruce up the potting area, and the floors. I plant the seeds the third week of February, and they're pushing up the soil by March. Then I make sure I have something to pot in.
