Aspen Greenhouse Project
Last week we decided that we have out grown using our kitchen as a nursery so we ordered a Aspen 9'x12' greenhouse from ACF Greenhouses out of VA. last year we had wire racks, lights, plastic covers potting soil, watering cans, hundreds of plants and did i mention the BLINDING lights in our kitchen. Even though we are running out of time before the snow comes for the winter this one project we need to squeeze in. Ella likes her toys in prime plant growing space in front of the doors and who are we to argue with that.

We live in northern MN and we believe a greenhouse would allow us to extend our growing season. What are your thoughts about your greenhouse after last winter and this growing season? Thanks.

We are happy with it. We run a 30k btu vent-less propane stove smallest one with a thermostat and ran it every time it snowed. I do think it would hold up to a good amount of dry snow but we can get a foot or more of very heavy wet snow " oak trees tops break off" here so I didn't risk it. We started seeds in February this year and every 3 weeks sense. It has also been great this summer for growing cucumbers and basil. Set up was easy and sturdy. The roof vents are leaky but I am sure all greenhouses do at this level. We haven't had any regrets with the purchase of the aspen green house. I hope this is helpful let us know if you have any other questions.
