Making Better Use of My Vegetable Greenhouse

As you know, I am a very serious gardener, and am always thinking about new ways I can improve the productivity of the gardens and the greenhouses at my farm.

Here at Bedford, I have a large collection of warm weather plants, including citrus trees and a vast array of other tropical specimens. Because I live in a four-season region, during colder months, it’s vital these plants move indoors, where the temperature and humidity levels can be controlled. Fortunately, I am able to keep them in high-grade greenhouses, where they can continue to thrive all year long. Until now, I kept my citrus collection in a hoop house next to my Equipment Barn. This year, I decided to store the citrus plants in my vegetable greenhouse in order to make better use of its vertical space - I knew the lush greenery would look so beautiful in the glass enclosure. We completed this project last week. Take a look at our photos, and let me know what you think in the comments section below.
