We’re moving into the season where day light hours are getting shorter and days are getting cooler in temperate and northern climes. With frosty eves just around the corner and green tomatoes still on the vine, a greenhouse seems like the ‘perfect’ solution to stretch those growing and learning days a bit further.
Greenhouses come in many shapes and sizes and DO offer wonderful extended learning and growing opportunities. That said, there are many other considerations to take into account before making the big leap of purchasing and managing a greenhouse. I have found KidsGardening.com has a wonderful resource guide to help navigate the many variables and how to’s for researching, using, teaching with and maintaining green houses. Well worth the read if you are considering a greenhouse for extending your growing and learning experiences! www.kidsgardening.com/greenhouseguide/1.asp
