Did you know that we grow in a 4o ft long green house year around? We grow mostly food for our selves but this year we started adding some herbal crops for our tea. Our green house saves us tons of money on greens throughout the year especially in the off season when greens get more expensive. Its so much cheaper to plant a $3 bag of organic seed than to spend $3 on one head of lettuce.
But that can be hard in some cold places.
It can be near impossible!
With the help of a greenhouse, polytunnel or hoop house you can grow in colder climates, even in Maine, and have greens year around! This is a great affordable way to extend your gardening season and your household food budget.
The Farmer took a few days to help his brother put up their new hoop house. Its very similar to ours wit ha few adjustments. Check it out in this weeks video!
