We could not have finished this without the help of our incredible friends and neighbors. Our good friend Joseph (also instrumental during other crisis moments- see earlier posts on fruit trees, watering etc), was there every weekend to lend a hand. As a retired lineman with the phone company, Joseph has skills for this sort of thing that only come with years of experience.
And our neighbors, Eddie, Mike, and Lindsay showed up with hammers, clamps and drills when they heard that our deadline was fast approaching. The pivotal moment came when Mike came over with warm Pastrami, egg and sausage breakfast sandwiches one cold early spring morning. These tasted so good that it gave us all energy to push through to the final stages of the project. I'm still trying to get the recipe.
Now that the greenhouses are done (we built two), we can look forward to early and extended harvests of pristine table fare. I am very much looking forward to creating Easter and Thanksgiving dinners around fresh greens and veggies picked fresh from the greenhouse.
