The greenhouse

The greenhouse is coming along, even in the wild winds... 

The chickens keep  sharp eye on its progress at all times! After all, it's attached to their chookhouse to help warm it in winter, with roof vents to open in summer allowing cool air to draw through from below and hot air to escape out the top. That way we can keep the temperature inside fairly constant and humid through the seasons for the seedlings to germinate and thrive, and also for a few tomatoes and herbs etc that we can grow in there through winter, hooray!

  1. Great - we are in love with the idea of a 'conservatory' in our one day world!
