More building....

Over the last week or so, we have been working on a new seed bed. We were having trouble with our seeding system: one of our other seed beds broke. So to save us the trouble of having to make room in the other seed bed, or in the grow bed every time we plant new seeds, we decided to make a 88' long grow bed down the side of the green house. It took a lot of hard work, and ingenuity, but after dodging in and out of thunderstorms, and the heat, we finally finished it.
Measuring and cutting.


Figuring out a way that we could build it better.


The first piece!


Now for all the rest.

Laying out the plastic liner.
The finished product! You can see that we have shade-cloth
on top of the new grow bed, to shield the seedlings from the
sun.

    Yes! I do! I am also the one who takes all the pics, so that is why you don't ever see me working! :)
