Greenhouse Completed as Blizzard Strikes!

The snow continues to fall and the wind to rattle the bones of this old farmhouse, but so far the greenhouse is holding up to the storm. Newly clothed in its two layers of poly, it maintains an almost comfortable 40 degrees on days like today, and a delightfully uncomfortable 80 degrees on clear sunny days, even as the outdoor temperature remains in the 20s. Hopefully we'll still be able to find it tomorrow amid the snowdrifts.

Many thanks to the neighbors for helping us heave into place the 200-lb heater that will keep the seedlings warm this spring!
