A new hothouse

Hubby not only fixed the cover of the patio which was broken because of the snow last winter but he also build a hothouse. He loves making things. He still had a window en got the French doors very cheap from friends at work. Hubby already put the strawberries in, some lettuce, capsicum, cucumber and of course tomatoes.If we ever get another earthquake we will survive.
 We should actually dig a water well as well lol. The kiwi plant is also still growing around the pole and the hothouse is build around it. It didn't have any fruit yet so maybe this summer. We love kiwi's. I will show you our harvest when it is ready.


  1. The plants will be cosy inside. What a clever husband you have.

  2. VERY nice! My husband wanted to make one of these. But I'm not encouraging it as he's not so handy, lol

  3. I LOVELOVELOVE this, Marja. Bon appetit when your bounty matures and hey!!, no more earthquakes. You folks have had quite enough.


  4. I hope my wife doesn't see it while I am sitting here playing on the computer. She would definitely want one of her own.

  5. Bonjour dear Marja,
    First of all thanks so much for your kind visit and comments.And please forgive my absence, during this semester I'm studying a lot French, and I don't have much time for blogging unfortunately.I hope next semester, after my tests, I can visit more blog friends and prepare different post to publish.
    Your blog is adorable and I love the new house!The decoration is beautiful!
