Could there possibly be a greenhouse in the future for me? This is the big
question. Mark had the taxes done last night and was talking to our tax lady who knows one of Marks work friends. He built one for his wife who absolutely loves it and is thinking of building one for me. We are going to go out to their place on Saturday and have a look at it and see how it looks. I have wanted a greenhouse for ever so long. At one point we were saving money for one and Mark got a Harley instead. That was about 11 years ago and one may be in the future for me. If I get a greenhouse this year I may have to forfeit chickens for another year. I think I can do that. I've gone without them for this long, I can wait one more year.

I did get to work outside yesterday and today. I love it when the weatherman is wrong and it benefits us. So it was beautiful the last couple of afternoons and I was able to get all my bags of amendments (poop) and work in my pea patch. Then today I had to make another place for my pea patch because the first one is right where Mark will build the greenhouse. But that was ok because it was for the cause.

It would be in very close proximitry to my garden room. Just a few feet away. So when I need a little break I can go and sit down in the garden room and read. And what will I read? Maybe I will have my computer in there and I can read blogs.

I had a thrill a couple of days ago when Sharon Lovejoy my favorite garden writer left a comment on my last blog. That was so exciting. I have been a fan of her books for so long. There are so many other blogs to read and enjoy.

Well, this is getting long and I don't want to go on forever so have a great night and ta ta for now.

I hope you get your greenhouse, but I think you should go for the chickens, too. Jeff and I LOVE ours! We started out with 25 but are down to 20 (DOGS!) and we are thinking about another 20 or so.

I just wish they would lay their eggs in the coop instead of all over (who needs an egg hunt everyday?) and that they would migrate to the back of the pasture instead of to the front yard!

Thanks for saying that Dori. I really do want the chickens too. Maybe we still will. Tomorrow we go see the greenhouse and I can hardly wait. The weather here has been picture perfect and I've been able to be outside working some. You most certainly should be able to grow basil and thyme and the other one you mentioned. Just be sure they do get some sun and don't overwater. Kay

I missed this one the other day! Don't know how that happened. Well, very cool about the green house. I'm certain if we stay in this house I will never have one. A cold frame perhaps but not a full blown green house. Won't have chickens either unless I put up a big high fence and sneak them in. Not sure I want to risk it though. I guess I will just have to wait a few more years till we find the perfect place in the country. Dreaming... now that's a good thing!

Yes, dreaming is a good thing, thanks Jennifer. You never know what God has in store for you. Love, Mom
