Todd is finishing up the mini high tunnel greenhouse he built right over the tomatoes and basil. It is our first attempt at extended/winter gardening and we are excited to learn.
The space is so beautiful, I look forward to having a solarium in the winter, the extended growing season just feels like a bonus.
If all works out, we will offer fresh salad greens in the fridge when available. Lots of tomatoes still coming on and even flowers fertilized this week by the bees looking for a warm place to hang out.
The sides easily roll-up to 4 and 6-foot levels to provide lots of air when it is warm. Already the lettuce in the greenhouse is twice as big as outside.
To keep it extra warm we will add row covers on super cold nights. It is lovely inside when the sun is out and a symphony plays when it rains.

Love your greenhouse–Beautiful! You will love getting fresh greens when there is snow on the ground.
