It arrived on Friday. I could not wait to put it together, but the snow and rain kept me inside all weekend. This morning the weather was perfect and I was out the door the second the air was warm enough to work in . The frame was actually fairly easy to put together, though the directions were clearly written by someone whose native language was not English (Put anchors near feet to keep winding air from lifting over. If snow comes you must manually remove it to keep from bowing). The diagrams simplified it greatly. The only trouble I had was was sliding the fabric over the frame. It's seven feet high, seven feet wide, and fifteen feet long. At 5'4, I was simply not tall enough to manage the last part by myself. Gary was installing a new toilet and the project wasn't going nearly as well mine was (why is it plumbing projects are never straightforward?), so I turned to Jeremiah who more or less willingly came out and helped.
Tomorrow I'll plant the (dwarf) apple trees. They have me a little worried. It wasn't a cheap investment so I need them tor do well. This isn't a simple matter of replanting seed. This is a tree! More pictures to come of course.
