A Mini Greenhouse

A mini-greenhouse like this was gifted to us.

While we were building the back yard greenhouse someone gave us a mini-greenhouse.

The shelves in back of our garden greenhouse are from the mini-greenhouse.

I put the shelves in our backyard greenhouse but kept the reinforced cover in tact.

Last week I put one of my olive trees, my favorite one, the Greek Koroneiki tree, outside.

Of course this week the temperature went down at night so I used the zipper cover to encase the tree on our front porch.

I’m hoping this layer of protection will help sustain the tree until the weather warms consistently.

What’s your first sign of spring?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. That was a clever idea. I hope it worked. The hen bit is blooming here – a sure sign that the weeds are awake and ready to take over the world once again.

  2. That portable greenhouse is adorable! And handy. I hope your olive tree perks up! Every morning I make lunch for me & hubby, and I always draw a picture on his lunch bag. Sometimes I draw an olive tree in a pot, and I tell him “that’s Jo’s olive tree!”. I love how they look. I might have to get one for myself.
