Hi folks,

They poured a concrete floor for the new greenhouse on the 12th and 
finished it yesterday, 13 January. Meanwhile, our temperatures have gone 
from 66°F (19°C) on the afternoon of the 12th to 20°F ( -7°C) this morning. 
Skies have gone from heavy clouds and rain to blue and sunny.

I had expected to do without a nice concrete floor, but the contractor made 
me a price I could not refuse. This is their off season, and they would 
have been sitting at home doing nothing without my job, it seems. This one 
is much much better than a gravel floor would have been.

Pictures are posted at and the pages link 
through the "Next" button.

The gas company just arrived to run the gas line over to the new greenhouse 
and set a meter. That means they will trench through the new gravel 
driveway that the concrete contractor had to put in yesterday to get their 
heavy equipment out. Oh, well! It is still, over all, net progress.
