Hello everyone! Rob Raskin of Las Vegas here again, and today I’d like to talk about how you can build your own greenhouse. These structures are crucial in many areas because they extend the growing season, and they can improve your yields of the fresh vegetables and fruits that you depend on for survival when you are off-grid. Greenhouses protect plants from extreme temperatures and pests, and you may be surprised by how inexpensively and easily you can build your own.
What Type of Greenhouse is Right for Me?
When it comes to greenhouses, you are only limited by your imagination, and many varieties are possible, including solar, A-frame, hoop houses, lean-tos, and even those you can make out of old windows. Any of these are excellent choices for year-round growing. You can find many different websites online that offer everything from free build-your-own greenhouse instructions to kits that come ready to assemble. Believe it or not, you can create a self-sustaining ecosystem in your greenhouse, and these biodomes are perfect for you if you want to speed up the growing process.
The types of crops you can grow in your greenhouse will depend on your location, the size and type of the structure, and the growing season, so you’ll need to do some research and trial and error to determine what works best for you. What kind of greenhouse experience do you have? If you have any tips you’d like to share, please post them in the comments section below.
Until next time, this is Rob Raskin, wishing you happy homesteading!
