houses that are green

May 20, 2009

the chosen green house

We completed an additional green house to complement the original and add much needed room for more tomatoes.  We put the skin on in really warm weather and the inside instantly became slightly hotter than the surface temperature of the sun.  These things really work; when we were visiting on Thanksgiving it was 20 degrees outside and somewhere in the fifties inside.  Without these greenhouses the short  season here severely limits the stuff you can grow.

    Been checking in and, wow, looks like you two are taking to it! Can’t wait to come that way. The greenhouses look downright sacred and the mountains look close enough to touch.
