Last of the Greenhouse Veggies


I cleaned out the greenhouse today and picked the last of the tomatoes, peppers, and a few eggplant. I think I will make some green tomato chutney. This will go down as another summer that never was - as it rarely got above 65 degrees and rained almost every day.

I learned a lot this year about what works and what does not work for greenhouse gardening. I am still sold on the grow bucket system - but the key to good yield is not to be greedy and crowd  your plants. They need space to breath and allow air circulation to help remove excess moisture. Fewer plants will allow greater yield per plant and reduce disease.

The majority of the garden ended up as moose food again - so number one on my to-do list for next spring will be a moose fence.

  1. Unfortunately, around here, a moose fence is simply a necessity.
