Stopping Inside the Vegetable Greenhouse

My outdoor garden beds are all cleared for the winter, but fresh, delicious vegetables are growing beautifully indoors - in a special greenhouse I had constructed several years ago that was inspired by Eliot Coleman, an expert in four-season farming.

Last week was cloudy and dreary here at my Bedford, New York farm. The deciduous trees are bare, my tropical plants are tucked away in their designated hoop houses, and all the precious boxwood shrubs and hedges are enveloped in protective burlap. During this time of year, it's nice to step into the vegetable greenhouse to see the lush, organic produce thriving.
