One Orchid Too Many
Problem: One Orchid Too Many!
Solution: Build Jill a greenhouse!
The pavers for the floor in the greenhouse came from my father’s lumber yard. Pile and piles of unused bricks laid in heaps in the back corner of his yard that just collected from jobs sites over the years. I remember one cold rainy day we went up there and organized them on pallets to bring them home so Peter could lay them out for the floor. He did an amazing job and started looking around for his next project. Little did he know that l had a list already in the works! I will tell you about them all before too long!
The day finally came when this project was complete and the orchids were able to move right in and they have never been so happy. What a difference in their attitude to be in the right growing conditions that make them flourish all year long. And then there is Peter, who got a new attitude as well! He got his house back!!! Well, sorta! Then came Puka! Another story for another day for sure!
Happy growing all you green thumb friends!
