Last fall Chris finished the greenhouse just in time to plant some greens and see just how much it would extend the growing season. I’m happy to say that we had fresh kale, arugula, and parsley all the way through Thanksgiving. Then it got bitter cold and everything went dormant.
Now that spring is here the beds are warming up in there and I’m starting to get some sprouts. I went ahead a re-seeded the lettuce bed but the arugula and kale beds look like they’ll come back with no extra seeding.
Here are some shots of the greenhouse...I don’t think I ever posted any.
It’s a pit greenhouse so much of it is below grade. The walls are field stone scavenged from the old camp foundation.

From south to north: garden, greenhouse, chicken coop and pasture.
I can’t wait for everything to be green and growing.
