The greenhouse round up

We are only a few steps forward with building the greenhouse. We had hoped to complete the job this weekend, but alas, it was not to be. The problem is the base. Although the width of it is correct, the length is 6cm too long. On Saturday, we filled in the gap with gravel, bricks and rubble but when we returned on Sunday, it had sunk. So we spent the day making concrete to fill the gap. It meant none of the panes of glass could be installed. That is a job for next weekend.

Talking of which, of all the panes to drop and break, it just had to be the specially cut one for the front apex of the greenhouse, above the door. We will have to cut a new pane from some spare glass we have.

Time is however pressing. We have seeds that need planting and the only place we will be able to put the seed trays is the greenhouse.
