When it comes to cold climate gardening a greenhouse is ideal for extending the growing season. Tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers thrive in the hot and humid environment a greenhouse provides.
A greenhouse isn’t just for the above-mentioned veggies though. Almost anything can be grown in a greenhouse environment, as can be seen in any garden center.
The key point to remember is to ensure adequate water, ventilation and pest control. This section will cover what to watch for in your greenhouse, and how to remedy the problems as soon as you notice them.
I know this section is looking quite sparse now but as the weeks go on I will be adding content to this and the other sections.
It has been several years since I have had my own greenhouse so I will be building a bigger and better one this spring. I learned what I wanted (and didn’t want) when I had my other one so can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can get busy building.
I know, I know! Winter hasn’t even fully set in and I’m already anticipating spring. This is going to be an exciting one for us though because we have plans to add a deck to our house, raised beds, a mini orchard and some garden structures. And as I said on my About page, we have spent our first two summers here observing; this is the year to get our hands dirty.
2020 is going to be a great year! And what better way to start than by launching a website to help others in cold climates such as ours? And as the pictures below show, greenhouses can accommodate a variety of plants.
I can’t wait to post pictures of our greenhouse during construction and in use.
