The Red House

This is too good not to share. An unusual story from Mandy White. At least I hope from your own personal experience that this is unusual. ~ Juliette

It was important to do a thorough job, for any contaminants could result in mold and other fungal growth, which would harm the seedlings that would soon fill the greenhouse.
