With a little bit of thought, planning and parts from the hardware store we can build a greenhouse that will let us grow year-round in some of the lower growing zones. They can be as small or as large as needed. The greenhouse can stay the one winter or many. It is all up to what we want and what we need.
Mathew Johnson gardener, author and contractor wanted to show the community of Provo, Utah how easy it is to put up his planned greenhouse, so he offered to cover one of the community gardens operated by Community Action and Food Back. It has worked so well for him that he has started a company named “Our Backyard Greenhouse.”
Using only materials that can be found at the local hardware store and his and his son’s labor it only took about one hour to cover the garden fully. With a little planning and thought we can cover or gardens to give us a longer and earlier growing season.
