My Sister's Greenhouse


Watering the plants, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

Here in Flagstaff, the growing season is very short. While the rest of Arizona bakes in hot temperatures, Flagstaff's last frost date is June 15th! My sister loves to garden and a few years ago, her hubby built her a little greenhouse to help her cope with the short season.

Right now, the little greenhouse is filled to the brim with several types of tomatoes, grown from seed. Several houseplants enjoy the greenhouse too! Right now the Peace Lilies are blooming and the oxalis plants are lush and full.

It's just a tiny space, but my sister keeps it neat as a pin and makes terrific use of the space!
