The PVC I got at Lowe’s with thin walls and lots of flexibility must have been what the gals at Trinity gardens was refer to when they referred to PVC pipe for the hoops. I did manage to bend the thick walled PVC pipe into the 1.5 inch PVC pipe uprights but it was a bit of work. The first bed doesn’t have PVC pipe hoops. Actually the pipe shape resembles a soft angle A-frame/triangle. I’ll get more of a tent look for the first garden bed rather than a hoop look once I drape the garden cloth. I doubt the plants will mind.
Getting my garden beds ready and helping Mom build her garden beds is my priority. The greenhouse build is getting moved back to fall because of getting the basic garden beds ready for this growing season is the priority. Building the greenhouse requires a lot of prep work for the foundation I did not budget for this spring. I have a lot of projects I want to get done, on the lawn and garden and I have to prioritize about what is needed and when…
At this time, I don’t need a greenhouse. I need to start big plants indoors and make sure my garden beds are ready for planting seeds/”cole crops” and/or starter plants that will be protected from frosts by the hoops and frost cloth. Help Mom get her raised bed garden started and pick out plants for her but not overlap growing the same plants.
There is so much I want to do in my yard and in my garden and I just can’t physically do it all because of my disability. Right now I’m working a day on of work and a day off of physical work I want to get done. It is sort of painful but by about May the most of the hard physical work should be done and maintaining the garden is what is left of the physical work. Weeding is tedious but it isn’t all that physically challenging.
I’m staring to go crazy and looking rebuild my Front porch railings and there are angled/miter cuts of wood. Actually the railing wood is rotting and falling apart so it needs to be replaced. I have a pattern for the basic wood cuts for the railing. So replacing the railing should be simple if not easy. Angles/miter cuts plus using some tool to round the corners. I do need to add a few hand planers to my tool box but I really need to learn how to use my router. At the very worse, my screw ups will become kindling for my wood stove.
