The Temporary Greenhouse
Since this is very temporary (November through March - maybe April) I use heavy duty tape to secure the panels.
The helper with his eye on me the entire time. My sweetie has camera duty.
before fastening the roof plastic.
Improvising with the shade cloth from the old house's back patio. I underline the roof plastic and pull the rope as tight as possible. This should keep the roof from sagging. I think this will keep it a whole lot cooler on those days that reach into the 80's during our winters.
I also believe this will make my roof a little more durable to any antics from Mr. Squirrel.
The roses will sit out this winter. They will be fine, although they look a little lonely now that all the other plants have been moved inside.
Rain due tonight. Highs tomorrow will only be in the 50's. I am keeping my fingers crossed. Hopefully I will not be out there rebuilding the whole thing tomorrow afternoon.
