This is the first autumn that I plan to grow veggies in our greenhouse. Our greenhouse is not heated, so I am not sure how long we’ll be able to extend our season. I will plant spinach and lettuce in the next few days. I also have them planted outside, hoping for a fall harvest. I use discarded window box liners to plant in. They are long, and I can get two rows planted in them. I only use the spinach when it is young and tender. We use it for salads. I would also like to try a tomato plant and a squash plant just to see if it will grow and produce in there during fall and winter. The greenhouse I purchased is sturdy, and has withstood very windy weather, including a hurricane. We added cinder block to around to bottom edges to help hold it down. It has a heavy duty zipper , creating a wide door opening, and 4 *windows* that can be rolled up for ventilation. I have it featured at the bottom of this post. They come in many sizes. I like it so much I am planning on purchasing a larger one next spring….unless they go on sale before that…lol!! If you extend your growing season, using a greenhouse please drop me a line. I would love to hear what you grow and if you’ve been successful.
The last week or so the weather was unseasonably warm, close to 90 some days. Last night we had a change, and autumn has made it’s way back. A cool wind is blowing today and we are expecting a nor easter on Thursday. Time to make sure our generator, chainsaw, and blower is gassed up. What are your plans??
