truth be told my 'inheritance' also included:
4 bales of Promix
2 rolls of greenhouse grade plastic
1 roll of pond liner
2/3 of a commercial greenhouse frame work (rest was crushed by fallen tree)
doors for above
2 kinds of shade cloth
5 gals of assorted 'osmacote' type time release fertilizer
lots of asst hose and watering fittings
cases of 4". trade gal and 3gal pots and many assorted pots and trays, etc
leftover stock plants (mostly tender tropicals, including starts of 200 named
coleus varieties, bananas, colocasia, etc)
Oh, a pickup truck, two GardenWay carts, and my first computer!
I can see from the above how the very scope of a project to reassemble the
bits and pieces acquired has and has not happened. Just used some GH plastic to recover back of house 15 x 20 lean to make shift GH where I overwinter about 100 milkweed plants and use the rest for storage. And all of the Promix is long gone as are many pots!
Having the idea, and gathering the materials is a great start, but not (in my case) a predictor of a finished project!
But you are so right Sally, I have 'played with plants' almost to my heart's content for many years now. And I hope for many more 'projects' ahead for all of us!
