And the man's junk we found this past week is definitely our treasure. It certainly was my "Find of the Week". Actually, for the past couple of years I have eyed this piece of junk over the bank in the tall weeds as I drove the highway back and forth to town. I never had the courage to go knock on the door and ask about it, though. I guess I needed my mom. She has that kind of intrepid nature that doesn't hold back over a little timidity. I pointed it out and she had me pull off the road.
We've been discussing building a greenhouse. Brianna had asked for one for her 16th birthday. We were thinking about a hoop house built of pvc with roll up sides. I was researching plans and ideas, but when we took a look at the "junk" over the bank at the edge of an apricot orchard all other plans and ideas fled away. What we found was 3 huge awnings that were free for the taking. We had Steve take a look and then go rent a 20 foot trailer.
