To me, a greenhouse is like a six-burner commercial grade Viking stove. Unfournately I’m not a big chef, nor do I have a huge family of ten to whip up dinner for, nor do I write cookbooks! I do however dabble in the food area and will occasionally try a new recipe from time to time. But I cannot really justify going out this minute and acquiring a big Viking stove! The same could be said about my gardening—I love plants, flowers, nature, and leafing through gardening books. But as my hubby has pointed out--I don’t really have a green thumb! He’s the one who gets stuck doing most of the planting, a talent he inherited from his mother.
So having a glass greenhouse is something I can’t really justify-yet! My little potting shed will have to do for now! After all, Miss Grove was married to a horticulturalist!
