Did you ever want your own greenhouse when you were a kid?

I sure did. Ever since I was in high school, I thought it would be so cool to have my own greenhouse. But I have never really have lived in a place where there was room. I would drool over the catalogs with greenhouse kits, but alas, they were always out of my budget. And I definitely couldn’t afford a custom built one. So it didn’t really matter.

Well, recently I discovered this video on YouTube that shows you how to build a mini greenhouse.  I have to tell you up front that I have not made this yet. My yard has a pretty good slope to it and I’m not sure where it would go. But I just had to share it with you. I’m always looking for ways to increase garden productivity. And this is one of them.

There are a few points I hope you picked up on in the video:

There’s still time!

Unless you’re way up North, you probably still have time to put one of these together to have during the winter and get an early start in spring.

There are lots of reasons to have a greenhouse–especially when you can make it yourself.

  • You can extend your growing season in the fall and get a big jump start on things in the spring
  • Depending on your location, you might be able to grow some things all through the winter
  • And having a greenhouse is another way to increase the productivity of your garden

I’d love to hear about your experience with greenhouses. Do you have one? What do you grow in it? Or if you don’t have one, can you see yourself using a green house?  How would you use it?

I think I would grow some winter greens and start a bunch of things from seeds in the spring.

Here’s to the greenhouse in your garden and/or the one in your dreams,

    Hi James,
    Thanks for this post. If I had seen this a couple months earlier I might have attempted to build one this year. I have always wanted a conservatory attached to my house, but our current house isn’t oriented quite the right way to do that (and it would be expensive), so for now I’d like to have a little greenhouse. This do-it-yourself one looks like a fun project. I have too many other projects going on to do it now, so maybe I’ll try it next summer in preparation for the following year.

      Hi Jane, I know what you mean about having too many projects. When you do get to this one, let me know how it goes.

  • Hi James, Thanks for posting the link! I enjoyed reading the article! I love your blog I hope that you keep it going! 🙂
