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.
The ultimate solution to my gardening needs was a greenhouse. I planned it for a long time, thinking of the ideal structure that would fill my needs, yet not break the bank.
This August, my greenhouse dream finally became a reality.
