My Nan and Pop didn’t have much money and always made what was available work for them. I was always very close to them. When I was a kid I took an interest in gardening and wanted a greenhouse.
My Grandfather built one in his back yard. It was just a small wooden frame with various recycled windows he had around or got at work I guess. He built a couple of shelves in there and it surprisingly worked really well. I can remember the smell of the humidity and the time I spent taking care of and planting seeds.
I remember cloning roses and trying to root anything I could find. Some stuff worked and some didn’t. Roses were pretty easy to do. I remember making lilacs and holly trees work too.
The sun is getting higher in the and it made me think of the time I spent in there. I was thinking how awesome it would be to have something like that here as I’m thinking I want to plant the milk weed seeds from last year. They’ve been in the fridge for a little over a month now and I’ve been wanting to start them earlier than last time since they took forever to first start growing. We don’t have the space for that sort of thing though.
