Hello Dear People

Well because my vegie growing has been so awesome, my guardian Pauline Conolly finally agreed to buy me a little greenhouse.


My greenhouse in a box!

The only trouble was  that she took the cheap option (what a surprise….NOT) and it came in at least 100 bits.  OMG!!

Good grief!

Good grief!














At first I was going to send it back, but  in the end my strength of character  preev…..preval……shone through,  and I decided to  give it my best shot.

It took me nearly all day to put the first ten pieces together. I did call out for help,  but nobody came (what a surprise). Things got a bit easier when I found a sheet of instructions. It was very hard to reach the high parts but I managed to clamber up. Climbing is in my blood.

My heart was in my mouth!

My heart was in my mouth!


It was nearly dark when I finally finished and put its green raincoat on  It was very tight and the zippers were a bit tricky.  Looked awesome though.  I pushed it into place behind my kitchen garden. Note my tomatoes in the photo below.

Looking good.

Next morning I went out to admire my handiwork. There was just one more thing to add. I needed a piece of paper and a red pen.  Aah yes….now it’s the perfect Ed Des Shed. No more hiding in the wood heap to indulge in my little vices. Hahaha.  Do you know what?  I sleep in there sometimes. Especially if  (when) Pauline is annoyed with me.

The final touch

Bliss! A little sip and a puff before bed.
