So, I had my green house weighted down, but I should have taken it down with wind gusts of 45 forecasted! I salvaged all the dirt, and spread it out in a perennial garden. We'll see what comes up :)

Luckily I took out a tray of 72 seeds out of there before it happened.

The ones that blew over were purple prair over, kale, butterfly weed, and a wildflower mix.

How disappointing for you.
But you still have time to start some more.

Oh no!!!!! I've never seen such strong wind that lasted so long. It literally blew some power wires loose from our house. Not sure if I would rather have the wind or the snow we're getting today. Gotta love March:)

Bummer.

I have one of those little greenhouses, too. I tie it to the deck railing

I, also, had one but found it too weak. It did last about five years.

Do you all like your 4 shelf greenhouse? I had a 2 shelf when I lived in MN but found it a pain in the butt to work with such low shelves. I had to sit it on the deck floor. I also worked the swing shift (3-11) and found that if I left the flap down when I went to work it was too hot during the day and too cold by the time I got home if I left it up. Now I'm retired and thinking of trying again but I'm still hesitant.

These grow racks are useful when hardening plants off.
And they keep critters off seedlings too.

I have a couple of those 2-shelf ones (bought them on clearance)... I use one for starting cuttings and other plants that need a humidity boost, indoors on the top of a workbench in front of a window (eliminates the low-height issue)
I'm learning to dance in the rain. Thank you, Sally & Chris & Sharon.

I don't think I'll find one on clearance this time of year. Darn!

Watch the clearance sales though and snag one for next year... I think mine came from JoAnn's, at 90% off plus a 15% off total purchase coupon. I was there with a friend and we bought them out, shared several with other gardening friends. I think they came to about $5 each... I almost felt dishonest at the register, LOL.
