A New Greenhouse at the Farm

I’ve been mentioning on this blog that we have been in the process of building a new greenhouse at the farm.  I needed a bigger structure than my existing hoop house for winter storage of my large tropical plants.  After some research, I decided on a gothic greenhouse manufactured by XS Smith, Inc.  With its high peaked design, it would accommodate these ever-growing tropicals.  The project, however, was much larger than anyone at the farm imagined.  There were many steps involved to get it built properly.  Plus, we had a freakish and devastating snowstorm right before Halloween, which set back progress on the construction.  Have a look at this project as my crew has been working against the weather clock.
