Winter is one of my favorite seasons because you can experience the best of all seasons in Ohio. Indoors many tropical and houseplants are blooming that remind me of summer and outside a few leaves from Autumn are dancing in the trees that nestle in my landscape. The new beginnings that Spring brings is in bloom and soil is being prepped for sowing to begin in my little home greenhouse. Who says you can’t have it all?
The heating in the greenhouse is always monitored. We have a thermostat reading displayed in our home that can be checked at anytime to be sure the plants are staying cozy year-round. At the bottom of this post I shared a video from the first year we grew in the greenhouse featuring how we heat the 10’x12’structure. I’m hoping to make a new video this month because we have made some changes adding electric heat backup just in case the propane ever failed. The first year was a little rough learning what heating would be most cost efficient. We are in our fifth year of growing and the propane cost has gone up since 2008. The greenhouse averages around $350 a year to heat with propane. I”m excited to share more with you about my experience growing year-round in Ohio so be sure to ask any questions on this blog post.
Here is a quick share of whats growing in my greenhouse that caught my eye on this 20*F Thursday in my Ohio greenhouse. I hope you enjoy the blooms!
It’s easy to grow year-round with or without a greenhouse. I’m honored be able to share this with you today and would be happy to answer any questions you may have about owning your own home greenhouse. If I don’t know they answer I know many product providers and growers who can help as well.
I share videos on youtube.com about my growing experience. Here the link to that playlist: BGgardenLive on Youtube.com .
