This week, Dad finished building his first greenhouse! It’s an 8’x12’ wood structure, with a thick (?mm) polyethylene cover.
This year he's growing a variety of tomatoes, bell peppers, and cucumbers. He might add more. Later, he plans to add a raised bed cold frame area in front of the greenhouse.
I'm so full of pride, I'm bursting! Just 3 months ago I gave Dad some information and books with greenhouse designs to look at. Dad designed his own greenhouse and built it himself (between the many rainy days) - in 3 months! He wouldn't let me or my husband or anyone help him.
My dad, a humble, unassuming guy, enjoys staying busy, knows how to work with his hands, and loves to make my mama happy!
And my Dad grows the best tomatoes I've ever seen!
