A Busy Day For Pogo

April 29, 2018

Good morning.  Tis a bit gray and wet today, but the sun does peek out from behind the clouds every now and then.  And guess what??  Our trees now have lovely beautiful baby leaves on all their branches.  They just sort of popped out overnight a couple nights ago. 

Yesterday was a busy fun day for my boy.  It started with his turkey treat in the morning.  On days when Joe is home Pogo gets his treat as soon as Joe wakes up in the morning.  Then Joe cooked him a hamburger, and he had a bit of that.  Imagine!  A hamburger for breakfast!  Such a lucky boy!

Next, we went to Home Depot.  Joe was fishing in the pond near the store and he met us when we got to the store.  First we went looking for the little white fencing to go around all our little gardens.  We were lucky and found exactly what I was looking for.  Then we got some plywood to make a floor for the greenhouse.  Joe loaded it all on his truck and took it home. 

Pogo and I then went to Petco to find some new shirts for him.  We bought a few, although some have to be returned (too big).  And we found an adorable baseball cap for him.  He looks so sharp in it and it helps to keep the bright sun out of his eyes. 

In the second photo of Pogo, he is on the porch, supervising while Joe puts the greenhouse together.  The weather was awesome, and it was the perfect day to set up the greenhouse.  First Joe cut the wood and made the floor for it.  Then he started the task of putting together a whole box full of pieces that finally turn into a greenhouse.  Here are a few photos.

The top photo is the greenhouse finished.  But then we put on a sun mesh shade screen that I purchased after reading a link that Kyra had sent to me.  This lets the sun in, but not the ultra violet rays that might burn the plants.  The second photo is Joe anchoring the shade screen to the flooring.  The last photo is the final product.  Woo Hoo!  I love it.  The piece that is rolled up on the front is the door.  It zips closed.

Today I need to repot a few plants and set them out in the greenhouse.  If the sun comes out, maybe Pogo and I can go to the store to buy some plant food and plant trays.  If not, we can go tomorrow.  We did not get to go shopping at the Ocean State Job Lot store, so maybe we can do that too while we are out. 

Are you watching the calendar?  April has only one more day.  Gosh, if time keeps flying by this quickly, I'll be eighty five before I'm eighty!  Hmmm, that's not such a funny thought!  Today I have a new quick page for you.  This is just a quiet one to jot down a memory.  I hope you like it.

Here's your download link:

Well, the morning is slipping away too so I think I'll make a fresh cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I love your greenhouse. I had thought about a small greenhouse for winter but we have too many hurricanes here. It would have to be anchored down and probably still wouldn't make it. That birthday boy is so cute in his little shirt and cap. I saved his photo in my Pogo folder. Post a photo of your tomatoes when you plant them. By the way, my green thumb is miracle grow plant food. (lol) We are also in a semi=tropical climate and that make a big difference. It's surprising when we have cold weather like we had this winter. It is now 82 degrees in the day time and the nights are a bit cooler. Sometimes it get too hot here and make my veggies bolt, but they stand back up when I water them. My brother in North Louisiana is having problems starting his spring garden because the temperature has been too cold. I've shared a lot of the greens with my neighbors. I still have a garden full of greens. My other veggies are doing great also. I see new tomatoes are beginning to grow. My squash is getting big, so eventually they will start blooming and producing.

I adore the Birthday Boy's hat and new shirt. Happy Belated Birthday to Pogo.
Your green house is just gorgeous and I love it. Will you have to take it down in the winter? I think that it is fabulous and like everyone else I cannot wait to see what you will be growing!
The days is hot and the nights are cooler but I know that it is going to get really hot this summer.
My periwinkle died... I was disappointed but it is ok. I will just have to get something else to plant. Since we do not get much sun I am thinking of some hanging ferns. They should do well.
I will go for now. Will give you a call tomorrow. Today has not been a good day so I will try to just rest for now. Hugs, Beth
