I thought I was going to have to do the shelves all by myself, as Mr. H took a nasty fall onto the patio today. We have a sliding glass door that comes out of the kitchen, with two steps down to the concrete patio. I don't know where his mind was, but instead of going down the steps, he stepped over and off the side, and landed on his elbows and knees on the pavement. He got skinned up a bit, but thankfully no broken bones. At 74 years of age, it's so easy to break a hip in a fall like that. He took something for the pain and, like the old trooper he is, came out and helped me put up the shelves.
One nice thing about spending 8+ hours working on the shed, I was too tired to cook. I did, however, end up with a "garden dinner". We had it delivered from The Chinese Gardens!
My mini-greenhouse will sit on the counter where the paint and tools are now. It will take up 4' of the 8' long counter. There will be open shelves underneath for bags of seed starting mix, vermiculite, potting soil, etc.
The next 4' of counter top will be my work space. Under that will be shelves for my tool box, brad nailer, and containers of nails, screws, etc. The chest of drawers will hold miscellaneous gardening items. The top drawer is in the process of being rebuilt. The shelf over the bench is 8' long and 16" deep, and will hold watering cans, gallon jugs for measuring/mixing liquid fertilizers, potting trays, etc.
The next cabinet will hold my radio, CDs, fertilizers, garden gloves, pegs for the peg board, and the drawers will hold miscellaneous garden supplies such as drip tapes, tubing and connectors. The wall holds my larger garden tools and a broom.
The back wall holds my step stool, the door to the garden, and a hook for my garden sweater. To the right of my sweater there will be a hook and loop of rope for tying the lawn cart up against the wall. The fertilizer spreader might hang from this back wall, too. The riding and push mowers will be parked here.
Two more shelves that we finished today. The longer one is 6', the other one just under 5', and they are 8" deep. These should hold gallon sized fertilizer containers and miscellaneous pots. The ladder fits perfectly underneath, and will come in handy once we put up the ceiling, as I'll have a hatch in it so things like irrigation pipe can be stored over the rafters.
I picked the first tomatoes today! One of the Tumbling Toms gave me four sweet little ones.Several more are close to being ripe.
