Meet Glenda : Growing Year-Round in Zone 3

You are going to fall in love with Tootsie’s adorable 12’x20′ greenhouse where she grows year-round up in Alberta, Canada when you hear this fun podcast. If it weren’t for asking this Canadian Do-It-All girl a few questions about her greenhouse a year ago I wouldn’t have a greenhouse to share with you all today. I made it threw many nights below zero the first year growing in Ohio zone 5b with the help of my dear internet friend.   Glenda of inspired me and I know she will get you thinking about growing in your own greenhouse. Over the year Glenda and I have become good friends sharing many things about growing including becoming partners on our new site about growing year-round at .

In this podcast I had the privileged of ‘picking Glenda’s Brain’ about her greenhouse up in Canada where there is more snow on the ground year round then green grass showing.   You won’t want to miss the details on how you can build your own greenhouse using recycled materials and how you will save money starting your own seeds.
