Took some shots from my roof when I was taking down the Christmas decorations. The beds have a Crimson Clover cover crop for now.

did you make your own green house or what brand is it. Was wondering if I could put a small hobby greenhouse on my deck? it is pretty large but would the space between the boards mean too much cold?

I believe the greenhouse is 6x8. I would look into indoor-outdoor carpet if put on a deck. There are multiple brands of this type of greenhouse, but this was the first one I bought.

Thank you for this thread. This reminds me to get my couch potato butt up & begin to plant seeds. Last Sunday a friend gave me several varieties of exotic Asian vegetable seeds, I will have to try them out this spring.

BTW, awesome seedling stand!

The stand worked quite well last year. I've had a number of things planted in the hoop house for a few weeks. Growth is slow, but good. Can't wait for some fresh veggies!

I've grown this one in the past with no complaints.
'Sprite' - 60 days

Type: Grape / Heirloom

Description: This early heirloom is a great choice for smaller gardens, bearing clusters of luscious, red grape tomatoes on compact, bushy plants. If you love grape tomatoes, but don't have the space for supports to grow tall plants, 'Sprite' offers a wonderful alternative. There is no sacrifice in fruit quality, size, productivity, or flavor - just shorter plants for smaller gardens. The small red oval grape tomatoes are borne in amazingly large numbers on more compact plants. Their taste is refreshingly sweet and skins are thin and crisp, just like the original grape tomatoes
