When we moved to our country home, I felt excited about building my dream kitchen garden. I researched ideas and designed it based on our family’s needs.
But, gardening season is relatively short in relation to the length of one-year, so I dreamt of ways to extend my gardening season. My garden is located over 400 feet away from the house, so trekking there in mid-winter, through hip-deep snow, to reach cold frames was unrealistic. Plus, opening the garden door would be next to impossible, due to all the snow.
I needed something close to the house, that would be easy to access and fulfill all my gardening needs throughout the summer and into fall, early winter, then very early spring.
I wanted something that I would be able to grow tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers in during the summer and hardy salad greens in the fall, early winter and early spring.
