    So basically we started seeds indoors in April. We got a few seeds going and I made a very frugal green house when it was time to move them outdoors. Our frugal green house consisted of a shelving unit covered with the clear plastic that painters use to cover floors /furniture.
    We also have a worm compost bin/house and used the composted materials in our raised beds. We have a small patch that was composted for two years and I decided this was the year that I would garden there.

    Here's the funny part...that composted area has begun growing tomato plants . I haven't put anything there either. And they are growing better and faster than the plants I grew from seeds. Only my garden is special this way:lol:

    My mom would call the tomatoes "volunteers". LOL I wonder if that is a southern US saying?

    Your greenhouse sounds lovely!! And clever! I wouldn't think to use plastic sheets!

    I need a suggestion about having garden wendy house for my children. Should I go for the expensive ones or cheaper because this is my first and the last child and I can make more babies. I think cheaper will be ok but which stuff is cheaper. I do not know.
