Small greenhouse kit

Small garden treasures green house.
We got this small greenhouse kit to extend our leafy green season.

Thanks Mom for thinking of us when you found it on clearance.

It only took us about 20 minutes to set it up and attach the roof and walls.

Next step is to secure it to the ground so it won't blow away during windy days.

Got any idea as to how long that plastic will last before it breaks down in the sun?

Wow, I had one very similar to that 10 years ago! They are not bad, but having any greenhouse space will make you wish you had more, so good luck! Pretty soon your whole south exposure will be one big attached greenhouse, especially with the deer problems you are expecting.

I'd love to know the brand name & what you think of the quality. From the pic, I'm impressed by what looks like reinforced corners. Or are they just a different color?

I have one of those green houses. I can keep several different kinds of greens growing all winter long. You will love it.

We went greenhouse hunting this past weekend at several local stores but had no luck finding one. But then again we probably shouldn't have waited so late in the season. Next step is to look online. Lucky you guys were able to get one.

So the question is, can deer learn how to unzip the door? ;-) Or will they just shove their snouts under the walls?

I'm also curious to see how long this will last in full sunlight.

Your new home looks a lot bigger than the one you had. Or is that just the perspective of this picture?
