Green House

Our weather is unpredictible and subject to frost every month of the year.  This past summer I only had 3 weeks without frost and a green house really comes in handy.  My neighbor Bob Bang created a line of greenhouses that hold up to our 100 mile w-i-n-d-s (I don't even like to say the word out loud so I spell it) our crazy -40 below winters and the hot sunny days we get during the summer.  It is double layered with a fan that blows air inbetween the 2 layers of plastic. I can grow almost year round.  We picked chard and aragula over Christmas and will be planting broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower the end of February.  Having a green house is the only way I can grow tomatoes.  I am hoping to get several more so I can offer a bigger variety to my CSA customers.
