It's Time To Get To Work

Well, the taxes are done and we've caught up on paperwork and fueled up the boat, so it's time to start gardening! There's still a lot of snow out there and the weather is very chilly, but there is more to gardening than working in the dirt. I decided to start in the sunroom.

There is a clear fiberglass roof in the sunroom to let the sun in, which is great for starting seeds....the Leeks and Tomatoes are up!!

 But there is a serious flaw with this type of roofing....

The condensation is terrible, and it "rains" in the sunroom all the time!  I am super tired of everything getting wet, so I decided to put up a layer of plastic inside to create a vapor barrier.  I sure hope it works.
