With another gardening season behind me I began to investigate other options to improve my garden experience. A friend of mine who is a seasoned Alberta gardener purchased a greenhouse. Her greenhouse was an inspiration. The tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers filled the space like a tropical jungle.
Selecting a greenhouse for our place came with its challenges. The winds can be as strong as 60-70kms an hour here. Any greenhouse we choose has to be able to handle the strong winds and the cold winters.
We found a greenhouse that was made by a local farmer and delivered intact. It was made to match our cabin and delivered – just as the snow was coming. Around here the snow comes and goes and comes back again many times over our winter season.
Our little greenhouse has been moved into place. We will build some shelves and ready it before the spring. In the meantime I am excited about this new plan. Yet again I am heading into the gardening season with a renewed sense of optimism.
And now the planning begins…what will I try to grow in this wonderful little greenhouse?
