A Confession – I Am A Greenhouse-A-Holic

 

P1000821

What on earth did I do before the arrival of the greenhouse?
Well I tell yer what….a lot of drooling, loads of heavy sighing & plenty of dreaming.
I thought my life in the garden would be complete if I had one of my own to stroke, but it’s not. I’m keen to try so many things, I want to do it all now & I need about 20 more of these babies!!!

I heeded all the wise words, prior to my purchase, advising that one should buy the biggest greenhouse one can a) afford & b) accommodate.
I took on board all of the top tips on greenhouse colour choice, structure, eaves height, ventilation & positioning.
I read up on the vast choice of accessories available, staging, automatic opening gadgetry, heating, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
I have so much greenhouse knowledge, I now have a flamin’ GCSE in the subject.

But it’s Sunday, confession time.
It’s been 6 minutes since my last visit to the greenhouse, my 94th of the day.
I am a Greenhouse-A-Holic.

There! Said it!
I need to find out where addicts meet up, to discuss & receive help for their addiction.

It’s almost time for bed, just enough time to squeeeeeze in one more visit.

I can appreciate your addiction (sorta), but don't take time out for meetings, just enjoy!

Surprised I didn't see a pillow and sleeping bag in there! Probably only a matter of time. ;) I don't blame you - if I had a greenhouse, I would have the same problem!

I've no time to be a greenhouse-a-holic, thank goodness I don't hav one!
Mind you, if and when I do, I'll be no different to you Jane. Have you made an appointment with the marriage counsellor yet? lol!

I am sure I could have been hooked just as easily as you, if I could have managed to find a place in my garden for a greenhouse! Instead I have my black nursery shelves from B&Q and I treat them almost like you do your greenhouse, I tend to the plants there every time I go outside, keep swapping them around so they all get enough light and water etc and plan what else I can put on them once I have planted some plants or given some a way to clear space. Oh yes, I can fully appreciate your addiction :-)

I can't believe how full your greenhouse is already - and the season hasn't even started yet! I need to get round to washing the glass in mine before I start sowing - and having a good old clear out and scrub down - I agree about being in love with it though - I couldn't live without it I'm afraid.

You and your greenhouse are in my Blogger Spotlight! I would spend every waking moment in there. :o)

Enjoy! I feel exactly the same about mine. My cat loves it so much she has moved in there!:)
