Hanna fell in love with Montana, nature, gardening and cordwood.  She built a gorgeous cordwood greenhouse/shed and filled it with plants and gardening tools.hanna-montana-3 Then she planted a beautiful garden of flowers and vegetables around the shed. hanna-montana-2Finally, she added a deer fence to protect the lovely produce and beautiful plants.hanna-montana-1

Hanna wrote a blog about her shed and shared it with the website I helped moderate at www.daycreek.com   We are hoping she will update her blog and let us know how things are progressing.
