Like I’ve mentioned before, having a greenhouse or some sort of season extension techniques (like cold frames, or hoop houses) is essential in a cold climate. Not only does it allow you to grow out your seedlings or harvest early season greens, a greenhouse can give you a yield of hot crops like tomatoes a lot sooner than what you have growing outside.
In my short video, I give you a tour of what is growing in the greenhouse in July. Like your outdoor garden, the greenhouse garden is a dynamic system that changes over the course of the growing season.
By July, most of my cool season greens are no longer in the greenhouse and I fill it instead with tomatoes, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and basil. I grow both in the garden beds and in pots that move in and out of the greenhouse, depending on the weather.
