I built this Irish garden shed from salvaged materials, mostly found on the 40acre parcel I own. The walls are made of dried black locust rounds, the beams from white pine I squared with an adz. The brick floor came from an old outhouse, I just set them in sand. The double door from two other sheds. I bought some treated 4x4 for the rafters and bottom plates. Made two windows and found the third. Splurged on cedar shakes for shingles. Built 11 years ago and have needed no maintenance. We really like it.

I am fortunate enough to say I live right here in Springfield, Illinois and have seen the courting sofa in person...along with Mr. Lincoln's home, etc. Everyone should come visit the Presidential museum as well to see other personal artifacts, and to get a true sense of his life and the man that he was. It is world class...in fact many dignitaries and actors etc. have visited.

These crops sprout best when soil temperatures stay below 70F, but if you wait until the soil cools to plant them they may not have enough time to mature. Instead, start seeds indoors or in a shady place outside and set out the seedlings as soon as they show their first true leaf.
Try growing:
Chinese cabbage such as Bok Choy
Endive and escarole
Radicchio
Lettuce
Parsley
Spinach

Signs of autumn are often apparent by the time the soil cools enough to grow the leafy greens that define many fall vegetable gardens. Cool temperatures tame flavors, so many gardeners wait until a frost or two have passed to harvest some of the crops in this group.
Arugula
Cilantro
Lettuce varieties which are suitable for winter
Mache (also known as lamb’s lettuce or corn salad)
Mizuna
Turnips (for both greens and crunchy roots
