Howdy Anamarie, welcome to permies!

I do not see the link you mentioned in your last sentence.

Are you looking to purchase land in Washington to homestead or looking for free land that the state has for homesteading?

It is nice to know that when I was facilitating high performance work teams in the late 80's and early 90's that I was doing everything correctly. Guess I should have sent my notes to them and saved them some time and money. ; )

Howdy Ryan , I was trying to remember a set of books that you would find helpful. Seems like I had found a source on line at one point but now I will have to search for it. I believe if you search for " David J. Gingery" you will find all sorts of really good stuff.

I think this is the set of books I was talking about ?  Build a shop from scratch.

If I remember right , it covers the idea that if you start out with very little, some tools and a forge, you can actually build better tools, then one machine after another using those tools. Eventually having a shop full of tools and machines which you have hand built, yourself! Pretty cool idea.

Hello Nina, Can you help me understand a bit more about what you are repairing? Are you taking off the whole roof?

In the picture it looks like there is a panel missing on the left of the pictures, is that what you want to fix?

It looks like there is wood along the top , peak, of the roof ? Is the whole greenhouse built with a wooden frame ?

If you place a ladder inside of the greenhouse and climb up under the vents, can you open them from below? Are they hinged at the top, screwed into that peak wood somehow?  Do you have a ladder to use?

Not sure about wood chips but every fall I collect the leaves that my neighbors bag and set out in the trash. I usually dump about a foot of leaves right over the top of my strawberries. They seem to love it. I haven't killed them yet and some of the plants are green all through the winter. They grow tall with large green leaves in the summer, and are loaded with fruit which the birds enjoy!
