Planting Seeds in My Vegetable Greenhouse

Fresh, organic produce will soon be growing in my vegetable greenhouse.

As the temperatures get cooler here in the Northeast, and outdoor garden beds are cleared and cleaned at my Bedford, New York farm, attention is directed toward preparing my vegetable greenhouse for planting - a structure that uses minimal artificial heat, where many cold hardy crops, such as root vegetables and brassicas, can be grown and harvested through the winter months. I love this greenhouse - its construction several years ago was inspired by Eliot Coleman, an expert in four-season farming.

Recently, my gardeners, Ryan and Wilmer, planted the seeds for our next growing period - enjoy these photos.
