More garden junk

As I have mentioned before my husband salvage junk Mainly metal junk for recycling (To sell at Salvage yards) He always comes home with something I want to keep for my projects. The material on this greenhouse is a heavy nylon of some sort. and I think it came from some factory that filters water. They were over large rectangle fiberglass panels about 3 foot by six foot. by 1/4 inch thick like a pillow case would be over a pillow. I took them off cut them open then sewed them to fit the pipe frame. ( The rectangle panels I use for quick fences for my chickens)
The opening is a long velcro strip on the green house end. I'll try and get the other pic on later. All it takes for making something useful from junk is just thinking out of the box.

RE: More garden junk

Good for you, that looks great!

It's come apart now but for a few years I had a little GH off the side of the house built of junk glass doors and visqueen. I really miss it. Could put my more tender plants and succulents in it for the winter and start veg seeds early in the spring. Such a warm cozy place to be on cold sunny winter days surrounded by green plants and flowers and fun to spend time in there when it's raining too. Hope you have fun with yours.

My son sells scrap metal too. He finds some great junk and bless his heart he knows what mom likes. (as long as it doesn't weigh to much, I can usually keep it, lol)
