Greenhouse Fail



*cry*

I can't have nice things.

But, when I went out to take pictures of the damage (and no, for once it wasn't me), I noticed that the morning's frost left the most beautiful patterns on the greenhouse film. Crystalline. Sometimes beauty shows up in your life in the weirdest places.


Insert some comments about lemons and a refreshing summer beverage.

The frost is beautiful :)

The frost really is lovely.

What happened to the greenhouse? Is fixing it a matter of going out there with a piece of plastic and a blow dryer or something?

A slice of lemon enhances an American wheat beer's natural citrus notes. Not sure what that has to do with your greenhouse, though... :)

When Life gives you lemons, throw them through Life's windows shouting TAKE THAT LIFE, and Life won't try that crap again!

This post made me confused at first because it was slotted in there nicely with all of Failblog's recent fails.... and I almost passed it up because it looked just like every other Failblog title. Then I was like wait, a greenhouse...? What happened? Big sticks and big winds?

Klobe has the right idea... Although I did manage to drink Hefeweizens all through the winter.

What happened is that someone who shall remain nameless (but not me) overfilled the wheel barrow with heavy top soil to place in the garden, then the barrow tipped and went through the film.

You can buy greenhouse tape which I think is just expensive clear duct tape and patch the hole, it's not very big. Just very sad.

Oh no! I hope it's an easy enough fix ...
