Michelle's Shed

"In the potting shed, our hearts, the pleasures of home, and the glories of the garden merge. Its practical character eases our garden labors. Its romantic nature enriches our lives. Here is peace, and beauty, and a sense of purpose."
Linda Joan Smith --The Potting Shed

This the story of the birth of a potting shed...

In the beginning I started as a chicken coop, eventually I housed pigs and calves. Since I was a chicken coop first I was built near the farm house for ease of collecting the daily eggs.

Here it is all fixed up:

"Step into the potting shed. The air is warm and smells of earth. Terra-cotta pots tower in the corner like soup bowls on a kitchen shelf, hand tools hang in rows, bins of soil and peat moss beckon. And there are the seeds--in packets, in jars, in plain envelopes. The sprouting of seeds is the first job of the potting shed, but it is the place where gardeners grow, too.
