We still don’t have tables but it won’t take long . . they’re almost ready. Vince has to cut the boards, shave down one end where they fit into the table leg hole, fasten them up (I forgot how he’s doing that) and stain them . . though I’m guessing he’ll stain them before fastening them to the tables.
The heater has been set up and tested.
The propane tank has been delivered and filled. They got it all set up and I saw it and said “Hey . . can you switch that one for the one by the house . . which is old and has the paint flaking off?” NO! Not gonna happen . . especially since both were already filled.
The greenhouse has been a long time in getting done. We ordered it in February, 2014. It was delivered in March and we didn’t need it til it got closer to winter. I can’t remember what was going on prior to Winter, 2014 but we just never got around to getting it set up and by about February, 2015, I was squawking about getting it set up and ready so I’m happy to know that my cold sensitive plants will have a warm home this winter.
Vince wants to get into some hydroponics so I think we’ll have lots of fun with it.
I will be interested to read about your hydroponics experience. I’d love to try it but I don’t have room.
I bought the same heater for my greenhouse last spring. It works great, but with propane at over $5 per gallons here in Alaska, I have to be very careful about when and how often I use it. Nothing goes into the greenhouse until early to mid May when the daytime temperatures are above freezing. I only turn the heater on late at night and turn it off first thing in the morning so it only runs between 6 to 7 hours and keeps the greenhouse temperature between 45 and 50 degrees. Even with that, we are using about 2 gallons of propane per night. Fortunately, by the time June comes, we no longer need the additional heat. I sure wish I could afford to heat it all winter, but I haven’t hit the lotto yet!
