Our new hothouse is finished, and I am so in love with it!
The whole thing was built out of old pallets, with two layers of clear plastic as a 'skin'.
Now we must get planting!
So far we sowed tomatos, egg-plants, carrots, basil, fennel and cardamon, but I would love to add some fruit,
like raspberries and gooseberries.
Seeing that we are going into winter, I also moved my tree orchid inside.
We added two flaps to the hothouse to regulate the air circulation, one at the bottom and one one the other side
at the top.
And on my darling daughter's insistance I finally tried out Picmonkey.
It is quite fun!
Here a quick tutorial if you would like to make a collage:
First open any one of your pictures in Picmonkey.
Then click on 'overlays', open a square, make it white and draw it out until it covers your picture completely.
Next click onto the little squares with the arrow pointing down right at the bottom of the Picmonkey page to merge
Then open the first picture you want to use for your collage, re-size it anyway you like it, and drag it in place.
Add the other pictures.
If you want a color field to put your text on again use any shape you like in 'overlay' and make it any color you like.
Then go to text (the 'P' on the picmonkey sidebar) and add text in whichever font you like.
Once you are done merge the layers again, and safe your picture.
Have fun playing around!
