Preparing The Greenhouse For Winter

Having a greenhouse, even a small one can be very useful on the homestead, we use ours in all four seasons. In this video I talk about some things I do to transition the greenhouse over for growing a few things through the winter.

 

 

Some of the things I do to help us grow food in the winter.

  • Partially insulate the greenhouse using bubble wrap.
  • Paint jugs of water black and place throughout the greenhouse to create a “battery” that stores heat through the day and releases throughout the night.
  • Use a thermostat controlled electric heater to heat the greenhouse.
  • Collect rainwater with a water collection system I installed in the greenhouse.

The greenhouse I have is a Palram Nature Harmony Greenhouse, 6′ wide x 8′ long – https://amzn.to/2yCxixs
