That looks like a great little greenhouse! Your hubby is sweet to do that for you! (Love the pic of him trying to understand the assembly instructions)

that's great CP! So, how far "past" your growing season will that enable you to garden? I assume your cool weather will sneak up on you by Sept.....?.....somewhat similar to MN?
I saw the photos you posted of your garden - it's a beauty!
