OVERVIEW
My wife and I are now retired and I decided to get back into gardening and growing our own vegetables. I began researching Greenhouses and settled on a Pelram 6' x 6' GH. I plan on using it year round and began constructing it this last Oct. Here is the finished product.

USING MY GREENHOUSE

I am going to use it for starting seeds and right now I have a winter greenhouse going. I am growing broccoli, cauliflower, collards, lettuce, peas, celery, and carrots.

At first I was afraid it was going to be too small but one advantage is that I can keep it heated with a single ceramic heater. The last cold front dropped down to the lower teens a few weeks ago and the heater kept it at 42 F or higher.

Great looking greenhouse, Bob. Palram makes nice greenhouses. Is that the Palram Harmony or Mythos? Looks like you have a nice size garden too from you diagram. We'll be looking forward to pictures of a lot of things growing in both!

Very nice @GardenerBob ! I have the palram Harmony and two Mythos 6w x 4 greenhouses. I started with the Harmony and then added the others to my side deck. I can only afford to use mine as season extenders because the power or gas up here is expensive and our nights get pretty cold after Halloween and stay that way until Aprill. Yours is soooo much tidier than mine!

She's very cute, and it's so great she's learning about gardening early.
Her class has a gardening challenge to see who can grow the largest cabbage. She was so excited when they announced it cause she knew I would be there for her. Here is her cabbage plant planted in a 5 gal bucket. Variety is Bonnie Mega-Cabbage School Cabbage She mixed all the soil herself and I assisted her in transplanting it. The contest runs till the end of May when the cabbages will be weighed.
