Stand alone greenhouse

Doorway

Dirt floor

Ropes for ''climbing''

Opposing openable windows with a fan in one, & wires to the left for the melons to hang from

Patricia, I very much like your greenhouse. It looks like a wood frame house with plastic as siding. Does that allow you to garden all winter? It looks so sturdy. Is it an add-on to your house, or a stand alone building? What kind of floor do you have?

A friend of mine in Buffalo, Wyoming, built a garage, and instead of siding, covered it with heavy greenhouse plastic. They have very harsh winters and they are able to grow some things all year long. The tender plants don't survive, but there are a lot of vegetables and fruits that can grow with protection such as their.

Cenek,

Grapes take a few years to reach production.  If you grow from seed, you risk waiting a long time, then having grapes that are no good.  I would wait until leaf fall, then move it.  That gives it time to put down roots before spring.  I would also cut much of the top growth, to balance the root loss.  Grapes have deep roots.

I've moved some grape vines that way.  It works OK.

You can also grow grapes easily from dormant cuttings.   I've done that too.  This link tells how to grow from summer cuttings.  I have not done that, but now that I look, it seems interesting.

"Show and Tell"

Phaselia.  Planted for bee forage.  Bumblebees like it.  Honeybees don't seem to have noticed yet.  Pretty flower, fern-like foliage.  Tends to flop over.

Lots of good things to eat.  Nice.

The pea plant got there accidentally, but my husband didn't have the heart to move it as it's doing so well. The rest of the greenhouse has tomatoes, red, green, & orange peppers, English cucumbers, & muskmelons. Outside, there are pole beans, peas, cauliflower, broccoli, radishes.  Can't remember what else.

I'm jealous of your greenhouse patricia, and I think I see a nice looking pea plant.

Looks great patricia!

Re: mulberries, as kids my brothers and I feasted on them, climbing the branches 8 or 9 meters to get them all. Sometimes we'd bring mom a few pints to can. But not often! Mulberries do really well in dry and windy climates.

also, I have found a grape vine growing at one of my rentals. The birds are already eating them. I want grapes at my homestead, thoDo I try to grow from seed or riak a transport attempt?
