When we had the greenhouse installed last spring, I originally thought I would be growing food year round in it.
But growing 2,000 pounds of vegetables can be exhausting, and by the end of the season I found myself needing a break. So I threw in the towel, cleared almost everything out of the greenhouse, closed the doors, and didn’t look back.
Until yesterday. I had gone outside to feed the chickens, and before I knew it, I found myself scrubbing the glass walls, removing pine needles from the tiny gutters, and emptying the giant feed tank I used to grow my green zebra tomatoes in. Today I plan on scrubbing down the breathable fabric flooring.
Some how, some way, I’ve got to figure out how I’m going to grow 2 tons of food this year. I want to be able to maximize my 10′ x 14′ glass greenhouse it it’s maximum potential, but I’m not too sure where to start.
Right now I’m thinking about growing tomatoes and peppers in there during the summer and early fall months, and lettuces in the spring. But beyond that, I don’t have a clue.
Have YOU ever grown anything in a greenhouse before? Do you have any suggestions?
