Seldom Seen #10

Seldom Seen #10 is our greenhouse, the interior of the greenhouse.

The greenhouse is "hidden" in the southeast corner in the back of the Mount. Unless you purposely take a walk around the building or are hiking out to the hermitages you probably don't even know that it is there.

I believe it is a little over 25 years old. It was part of the additions that were added to both wings when the Sisters of Benet Lake, Wisconsin merged with our community. Time and weather have taken its toll on it however, with the glass windows on both the ceiling and side leaking badly. But, a face lift is in store for it this summer, as many of our gardeners and individual sisters rely on it for potting soil, a southern exposure for beginner plants and, lately, even some fresh lettuce and vegetables for summer suppers (grown free from the ravaging of our hungry deer)!
