Understanding my greenhouse

Thu Mar 08, 2018 6:15 pm

Hi all!

I have 3, 3ft X 8ft raised beds outside and a metal framed greenhouse that I bought second hand and the plastic was ripped so I rewrapped it. In the summer the greenhouse gets crazy hot, but in the winter, the soil in there (i have 3 raised beds in there) freezes. What can I grow in there? I live in the North East USA and it can get pretty cold during winter. Any ideas? Last yr was the first yr I had it and I threw in a few randoms to see how they would do. I planted a couple tomatoes, peppers, onions and beets and they all died. :(

Try to find out when your last frost is and plant tomatoes around that time.
Planting too early is fatal
I keep my greenhouse door open when it is really hot and you might be advised to cover it with shade netting.

Keep trying, it's worth it.
