In fact, I did not particularly dream about my greenhouse. My mother lives close by and has a large enough greenhouse. I’ll help out there and get the vegetables I need. Cucumbers and tomatoes come from here in the summer. Paprika can also be. What else do you want? I still dreamed of my own greenhouse, but not enough to build / buy myself.
One evening, a dad called and said I had a greenhouse. The dream was fulfilled without much dreaming.
The first task was to find a place for the greenhouse. The closer to the house or garden your greenhouse is located, the more you are likely to use it. Also, consider access to electricity and water — both of which you’ll probably need.
Look for a level area with maximum exposure to the sun. If possible, find a location where the greenhouse will be getting at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.
My greenhouse is polycarbonate. Poly carbonate is less expensive than glass, is lightweight, and retains heat better than both glass or plastic. Additionally, polycarbonate can be used on flat or bent surfaces, transmits light well, and is extremely strong.
Now came the plants. For myself, they were not, because the greenhouse was not planned. Fortunately, I have a girlfriend who grows plants. I got tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers from him. Mom made a new strawberry field and I received 14 strawberry plants from her too.
Now the plants are already quite large and will soon become the first fruits. So exciting. Although my mother in the glasshouse has done a lot and everything is familiar. The greenhouse is still the first year and it’s interesting to see how things grow.
Most importantly, have fun and smile with the joy of growing plants.
