Propagation Greenhouse Construction

The propagation greenhouse or prop house is a warm, sunny place for seeds to germinate and grow until they are ready to be transplanted into the field! I will start my seeds in plug trays:

?????????????????????????????The majority of the prop house was built from reused materials! We decided to build it off one side of the barn, so we only had to construct three walls!

Thank you to our friend, Satch, for his help constructing the tables!
