Well the greenhouse made it through the winter with just a few scratches.

Later that day after the snow had melted some.

I have survived the winter with an intact greenhouse, On the right end,of the GH, I had partially replaced the plastic with Suntuf panels. The other end is going to be rebuilt and I am planning on another 8 foot section to the greenhouse. I am going to overlap the Suntuf panels so there should be little or no leakage when it rains. The right end will be permanently closed as I want to put a planting bed across the right end of the GH. I found out that the GH space becomes limited and one has to make use of as much of the space as possible. I hope to grow tomatoes and peppers in the GH during the summer. The GH provides a warmer and more stable environment for plant growth. I use an automatic water timer, so everything gets watered each day. I used a soaker hose to do the watering. I hope to relook at the watering system to make sure everything is being properly watered without wasting a lot of water.


I am looking forward to when the snow will be gone and I can do some actual garden work.

So glad you made it through okay. Your greenhouse is an inspiration, and your accounting for its construction most helpful.
