As many of you in our local area know, we've had some severe thunderstorms recently. Well, we were unfortunate enough to get hit by straight-line winds about 2 weeks ago. 80 MPH gusts! It sounded like a train was going to hit our house. Unfortunately our greenhouse, which Ben built just a year ago, took the wind head-on and lost. See below for before and after.
The winds lifted our greenhouse, tossed it about 100 feet, before it crashed into our creek! :(
But we try to make lemonade out of lemons. After salvaging the lumber, paneling, and the intact door, we reused it to build a tall chicken coop. (We know; it looks a bit like an outhouse!)
On a brighter note, a friend of ours raises rabbits and donated a ton of rabbit poop to fertilize our future hoop house. Literally, there was over 1 ton of rabbit poop weighing down Ben's truck. Don't you wish you had friends like ours. :)
We are Four Flags Farm, Armonda & Ben Riggs!
