    Couple of pics of my trellis just behind the garden pond.

    Has anyone used one of the hobby greenhouses just for the winter and then disassemble and go back outside for the spring/summer/fall?

    After the winter we had last year, many of us had a hard time. Even as far south as Naples FL. I was bring my plants inside hanging on hooks in my living room and in the bathroom on the shower curtain rod. It wasn't much fun. I think its a great idea Rick. I did send you a message btw. Have Fun,Rich

    Since I also do hydroponics (lettuce/radish/micro greens) I was thinking of getting one of the smaller hobby greenhouses and putting on the pool deck for the winter. Still thinking about that. If it comes down to it and we have another hard winter I'll bring everything into the garage and run a small heater and lights.

    I have a large garage with a huge window...problem being, the window faces North. I am going to be figuring out how to turn the garage into a greenhouse.

    That looks wonderful, Rick. Love the tropical palms around your grow area too. I wish we could grow like that outside here but it just gets too cold.

    cheers,
