Unsettled

The weather, that is. We're in that part of the season where the weather just can't decide what it wants to be, so it's everything. Periods of fog, overcast, sun, rain, and wind, all mixed up. But the trees are making leaves. The big maples in front of our house are covered in fat buds. The birches already have little leaves. Radishes are up in the garden, and the snow peas are sprouting.

Looking up through some trees. No leaves on these, yet.

The little garden greenhouse/tent did well in the light wind we had all day yesterday. I did find some loops on the back that I used to tie it to the fence. I also added some cement tiles over the ground-level tubes to help hold it down. I may do a little more reinforcing today based on some of the comments I got on yesterday's post.

  1. DON'T USE THE LOOPS!!
    They tear out....and destroy the tent where they are sewn in...
    they are not sewn in to the same strength as a camping tent...
    just overlocked into place.
    Concrete at the bottom, outside and in....
    and keep the door zipped shut at all times when it is windy.
