About 90% done with the harbor freight greenhouse. So many damn nuts and bolts. By the time I'm done it'll have taken a solid 10 hours to get this thing set up. Can't wait to get the shelves in there and start growing stuff.

The orange extension cord is temporary. Just hung that light fixture in there for now. Going to string rope lights all the way around to light the whole thing when it's darker out after the long weekend.

Random plants. Mainly wife's succulents, cactus, couple lavender plants, etc.
Grates down the middle to sweep in dirt or whatever.

Going to span 1/2" conduit the entire width to hang plants and grow hydroponic cucumbers eventually. They'll also help reinforce the whole thing some.

Vine borer killed my squash plant and I've caterpillars on my kale... Rabbits are eating the leafs off my beets and something is attacking my cucumber...

Gotta get some Bt and diatomaceous earth. Maybe a cover for my cucuberits. My phone takes **** pictures so I didn't bother.

I've had good radish and sweet pea harvests so far.

you don't have the appropriate attire so why set yourself up for failure?
