    Thanks for the pics.

    It looks good to me and I will order one tomorrow but I will put mine on
    concrete, at least for the first year. In the first year I will determine if I need the post that your DH put in(probably a good idea)

    The instructions tell you to put down a 5" layer of gravel. There is a frame/base that you probably can't see in the pics (I can try to find a pic of it if you want me to). I didn't want mine in gravel since I'm going to grow right in the soil, so hubby dug down to hard clay so we'd have a level base (ended up being about 10" down at the back to make it even and level in the front) and we put it right in the soil. In addition to the posts in the corners, he bought some multi-purpose metal stakes at Home Depot and put a custom curve on them so they'd hook the base/frame just right and he drove them into the clay.

    You'd probably have to bolt the base/frame into the concrete if that's how you decide to do it (you probably already knew that, but I don't want to assume anything, ya know?!?!).

    mammabooh, as others have said, the pictures are great; I just have one question, I noticed the fence on your corn is only three-feet tall, which might keep out the rabbits and other small critters, but how are you dealing with the deer?

    Went out this morning to take measurement and it just won't fit unless I move the heat pump.

    I don't want it in the garden, it is already too small.

    I guess I will build a retaning wall to level the ground. Iam in SW Missouri,
    if it dosen't go up hill then it goes downhill.

    I going to order it so I can get started.

    Thanks for all the info and pics, especially like the asparagus

    For some reason, we don't have trouble with deer during the summer! I guess they have enough to eat in the fields? We see them in the woods every few days, but never in our yard. They're through here every night in the winter, though.

    Great Pics Mammabooh :) Garden looks great!!!! --- by the way how's that "vinegar" coming? I have a bunch of berries in the freezer and am wondering if I thaw them if I can make some as well.... Was it you who mixed them with Vodka and sugar and let them go or was it one of the others?

    Yep, I am the mixer...anything sweet and alcoholic has to be good!

    By the way, after I strained the berries off, I put them in a jar and put them in the fridge to use as an ice cream topper...alcoholic ice cream...what could be better than that?!?!?

    I loved your greenhouse, and I want to know how much you paid for it and where you purchased it ?

    Congratulations on your greenhouse. I hope you have many years of pleasure from it. For anyone else who is considering buying the same model the GardenWeb site has many threads on it. They also have complete directions, with pictures and many tips on how to assemble it. Some members there had some troubles erecting theirs last year.

    Congrats! If you have any questions, just let me know. Hubby or I would be happy to answer them for you.

    I put a bunch of compost in mine a few days ago and have been keeping it all closed up...hoping to kill off any remaining weeds seeds in there. It got up to 120 degrees the last two days...makes the outside 80 degrees feel frigid!
