Building Your Own Greenhouse
By Max Clarke
Picture this. Out your kitchen window there's three feet of snow on the ground and the thermometer reads five degrees below zero. You have guests coming for dinner and you really want to impress them.
With a smile, you walk to your frig and pull out fresh lettuce, home grown tomatoes, fresh radishes and green onions. These veggies aren't pre-washed, treated with preservatives or vacuum packed for extended shelf life!
And no, you didn't get them from the grocery store where they were shipped from south or north of the equator (depending on where you live.) So where did they come from? Your own backyard!
Listen, it's amazing what inroads we've made in the growth and delivery of fruits and vegetables. Take a stroll through the produce aisles of your favorite supermarket during the winter months and you can find plums from Chile, avocados from Guatemala and ready-made salads sealed in plastic.
BUT, if you enjoy truly fresh fruits and vegetables take the step and learn how you can have these tasty commodities year round!
Building your own greenhouse may sound like a daunting task, but it really isnâ€™t.
