Last spring, I had a brief moment of pure joy. After many years, one of my biggest dreams finally happened. We moved into a house that was an architectural and interior design masterpiece. The gardeners were called and my first task was to clean up the huge garden shed where all the tools, supplies, and equipment we would use for the house were stored. I got down to business and cleared the entire garden shed of all the broken and old things that I had collected over the years. I was determined to make the most of all of the garden space and make it a haven for the things I use and cherish every day.
Before I moved out to California to live with my partner, we lived in a four bedroom house in an urban area. Until this new find, that old was the house I would have chosen if you asked me to pick the ideal house. I was really lucky to be able to live in a house that had a huge garden attached to it, in a really great neighborhood. There was a community garden and a place I could go to do some serious weeding. I love growing things and I love growing healthy and delicious food. That house had a few vegetables growing, but not nearly as many as this new garden, even though it’s a little smaller.
What makes this garden so special? First of all, it’s a greenhouse. There are actually two attached to the house. One is a medium size that is actually attached to the house and it is much too small to grow vegetables in. The second greenhouse is the main garden and it can house many different types of plants. The main greenhouse is large enough to accommodate the plants I grow and I have been able to successfully grow several plants in there.
A greenhouse is a space where I can grow some of my most treasured plants. My first garden is in this greenhouse. It’s a container garden and I have many different types of herbs growing in there. The herbs I grow are my staple spices and herbs that I use on a daily basis. Some of the herbs are used in cooking and some are used for medicine. Since I work as a freelance writer and researcher, I also grow some special research herbs in this greenhouse.
It is my pride and joy to grow all of these special herbs and spices in my greenhouse. The plants that I grow help us to save money. Herbs can be an expensive addition to your kitchen. By growing them ourselves, we save hundreds of dollars a year. That saves us money to spend on food, to fill our bellies, and allows us to save more money for our other important purchases. That is the reason we have the greenhouse.
Another great thing about growing our own food is that we save the seeds from our garden. I always want to be able to grow the same herbs and spices for later years and the seeds are perfect for this. Most herbs die off in our weather and if I don’t have my own seeds to grow, I will not be able to grow the same herbs for years to come.
When I first moved to my old house, it took me a few years to become comfortable with gardening and to make my first garden. After several years, the garden is thriving and I’m growing more herbs than I can even remember. I’ve created several different herb gardens and I’ve been growing flowers as well. It’s like I have a whole garden in my kitchen. You don’t have to live in a cold climate to have a greenhouse in your backyard. The greenhouse isn’t for your home, it’s for your kitchen. You can have a herb garden in the back for your kitchen that is self-sustaining for years.
The greenhouse is full of plants and when I say full, I mean full. When the weather turns cold, you won’t be able to see your plants as they hibernate. I put my plants in the greenhouse for a few days to make sure that they are ready to hibernate and they hibernate with great success.
My greenhouse is just like a miniature garden. I love the way that I can grow a variety of herbs in my own backyard. I like being able to grow our own herbs in our own space. The herbs that I grow allow me to make sure that the family has fresh herbs that are available to use. I can grow my own, you can grow your own and it’s easy to grow a variety of herbs for everyone in the family.
There are a couple of things that you need to have before you can begin your greenhouse. First, you will need a way to protect your plants from harsh weather and pests. The greenhouse provides an extra layer of protection for the plants. I like to use an old wooden frame that I have covered in some greenhouse plastic. If you’re wondering why I used plastic, that’s because I live in the area where it gets cold. The greenhouse protects the plants from the cold and the snow. I recommend putting the plants in early in the year or in March, so they’re ready to hibernate when the weather turns cold.
The other piece of the greenhouse is the location. You will need to find the perfect location in your yard. The location will need to be far away from any power lines and out of direct sunlight. I’ve heard that a lot of the greenhouse plastic that is available on the market can’t be recycled. That being said, there is also a lot of greenhouses available on the market that are constructed using biodegradable materials. So, if you’re not sure about using biodegradable material and plastic, ask the manufacturer about that. The point is to use your own judgment about the type of materials you want to use. You need to make sure that you follow the instructions on the packaging of the material so that it is safe for your plants.
