Default Our Winter Greenhouse Experiment in Kentucky

Our Winter Greenhouse Experiment in Kentucky

excerpt from above:
Quote:
A few years back we bought a small (6X8) greenhouse from Harbor Freight. These greenhouses are not all that great, but they do the basic job. In a previous blog, I detailed the changes I made to the greenhouse, in order to make it garden-worthy. Now it was time to put those modifications to the test.

We had used the greenhouse as a way of extending the growing season, even supplying some additional heat (electric heater) during a cold snap in early spring. After reading the "Winter Harvest Handbook" by Eliot Coleman, we became interested in trying some of the same ideas in our small greenhouse. Eliot Coleman ran an unheated greenhouse with winter crops in Maine (definitely not known for its' warm winters). So, we figured it was worth a try here in "warmer" northern Kentucky. As fate would have itů
