Today I finished draining my heat storing water barrels and removed them from the greenhouse to make more room to install a wood stove to save energy billing as the extra heat bill for the electric heater in the greenhouse last spring was $90/month,,,,Ouch!

Besides the old wood stove that was sitting outside rusting and just needs a few new fire bricks and a blower fan, I have the old tin hearth from under my uncles stove that he gave me when he got a new one, and some old but never used green fiberglass to get the celling put in so the roof will be double walled as well as the walls.

Also, we got a good rain yesterday,

almost a half inch, just in time to water my Thieves Poplar and Golden Willow cuttings I poked in the ground over the last few days.
