Completion — Summer 2015

As many of you will have experienced directly, we had a very hard Winter and Spring. Many are referring to June-uary, our  month of very cool, later Spring temperatures. I’ve opened the cottage for the season and have been working on cottage specific tasks at this point. Varathaning new kitchen cupboards, and a bow window area, rearranging furniture, building a shelf, and exterior steps, and helping a friend with an outdoor shower are the tasks at hand. Once I’ve finished the cottage specific tasks, I’ll turn my attention back to the greenhouse.

Greenhouse Materials Arriving



This is an exciting week. We venture to the cottage hoping for sunshine!

The greenhouse materials that I needed to purchase are arriving on Thursday. On Wednesday, I’ll prepare the greenhouse site to ensure that it is level, and then work with the gravel and concrete blocks. My level will surely get a good workout.


With the Victoria Day long weekend coming up, I hope to build the platform/floor. Pictures will follow early next week!
