And you thought I was kidding...

I have no idea how we managed last year with just two and a half shelves in the greenhouse. Even with the addition of 2 upper shelves and 2 lower shelves it appears I am running out of room....oh what to do? I was half way kidding a while back when I mentioned using the space below the bottom shelves for more plants....but guess what? I have no choice but to move the mature herbs and broccoli down below to make room for our larger transplants....namely, the four Atlantic Giant pumpkins that are taking up lots of space...it's unbelievable how fast they are growing and they have already set some fruit....It's like someone snuck in and pumped them full of steroids or something... lol! In addition, the peppers were repotted into larger pots so space is really getting limited. Last year we were able to plant most everything into the ground by late May and early June. Hopefully the current weather trend holds and we can plant most of the garden a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. If not, Dan's (at Urban Veggie Blog) idea of utilizing the greenhouse walkway may still come to pass. : )

  2. Now I really wish I had a greenhouse. I'm sick of running my cold sensitive plants in and out of the house everyday. I see a second greenhouse in your future!

  3. Isn't that always how it goes? The more space you give yourself the more you all of a sudden need?
