Preparing and Planting My Vegetable Greenhouse

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

As my outdoor grounds crew continues with fall chores around the farm, attention is directed toward preparing my vegetable greenhouse for planting - doing this now ensures we will have fresh delicious vegetables through the season. I love this greenhouse - its construction several years ago was inspired by Eliot Coleman, an expert in four-season farming. It uses minimal artificial heat - in fact, most of its energy comes directly from the sun, and it successfully grows a variety of cold hardy crops. Last week, all the beds were made and the first seeds of the season were planted.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
