Inside the greenhouse

Now that spring is on its way, we're working on making the greenhouse work. I potted up the parsley that I got on Friday. The potting bench is great, and it's not temporary like my old set-up was. I'm liking this!

The parsley is in the pot on the lower right. It will probably go out onto the deck in a month or so.

Right now there is soil (dirt) in that can outside the door of the greenhouse. I have two new bags of soil (dirt) under the potting bench. I thought that I'd be able to keep soil (dirt) inside, but it's not working out that way for now. Ken found some wooden squares for making a step-path, so I put those in on Sunday. They look good!

  2. Looks fantastic. Convenient and organised. You will get so much more done and be able to look forward to it more, rather than have to tidy everything away. Great stuff.

  5. I thought the wooden squares were palettes that you have buried in the stones/gravel at first look before I read your post :-) The green house looks great.

  10. I have been fascinated by your use of the words dirt and soil. In the UK and Ireland 'soil' would usually be referred to as 'top soil' and used for laying a lawn, or starting a new garden off. For plants we would buy bags of compost.....or even by careful recycling make our own compost from rotting vegetation etc.. Dirt would be dusty muddy stuff which would be useless for growing anything in.
    What do they say about English being a common language divided.....?

    1. I see that in British English "dirt" also means "excrement." I don't think we have that meaning in U.S. English. Don't you describe something that is dirty as being "soiled"? We don't buy "compost" in bags, but either manure or potting soil (dirt). Soil in French is either terre or terreau (soil-based compost). And by the way, we Americans pronounce compost with a long O in the second syllable, rhyming with "post."
