We do not have a greenhouse on our property but we do have a garden where we grow tomatoes, lettuce, parsley, coriander, tarragon, mint and chocolate mint, sage, peppers, wildflowers and more.
And we do have a green house where, for one example, we are careful to buy only what we need and we recycle and compost; my gosh I can no longer look and touch an egg shell, a parsley stem, coffee grounds, seeds from a tomato without thinking to the compost bin they must go!
Here I am yesterday afternoon making larger our small garden for next year as I want to also grow garlic, cucumbers,eggplant and more flowers.
