I can’t pretend like this is a perfectly happy project to share with you. Truth be told, many words were screamed during the course of getting the greenhouse to this point. (Some holier than others).
We saved for our Planta greenhouse for a year, waited anxiously for its arrival, and were quickly forced to submit to the months and months it took us to put it together. Projects for homesteaders who run a business and homeschool four kids tend to take time – and the 80,000 pieces (yes, I’m exaggerating slightly) that this greenhouse arrived in meant this project took us a long, long time to finally execute.
It took renting a trencher and studying a lot of electrical basics to finally get power run from the shop to the greenhouse, but have mercy, we finally did it! We made this greenhouse grow in winter.
Words cannot express how unsexy some of these projects are behind the scenes.
Technically the greenhouse hasn’t actually grown anything yet, but now that it’s averaging 75 degrees and staying 30 degrees above the coldest outside temperatures, we may finally be in business!
Stay warm out there!
