Here are a few fruits for my labors. Thought I'd share with you.

 -
My peppers are growing constantly.
Glad I had them in the greenhouse, for we already had a killer frost last week.

 -
I've been picking tomatoes for a few weeks now, will have lots to make whatever.

 -
Just a few results, it feels so good to see these. All my hard work has paid off.

Hi here are some more pictures of my greenhouse and the results, enjoy.

 -
These are the grouds I picked off the plants this year. I'm drying them on a screen in the greenhouse.

 -
Closer look aren't they peculiar?

 -
I just pulled my onions from the garden this week. They will be drying in my greenhouse as well.

 -
This is my greenhouse from a wider angle, I've cleaned up a lot of plants already and made room to dry the picked veggies.

 -
Just some more things I picked today. All from my greenhouse.

Christina,

I've been picking tomatoes for a few weeks now and those we can't eat I put into the freezer until I have enough to make what I want.

I'm planning to make pizza sauce, tomato sauce and salsa so far.

Oh Rosepetal...That's some greenhouse you've got there!! Oh, what I would do for one of THOSE!!

I can't believe you've already had a killing frost! I would be SO depressed! (Maybe not if I had a great greenhouse like yours! [thumb] )

Rosepetal, the results of all your hard work is beautiful, [thumb] and your greenhouse looks fantastic! I hope you are going to post some more pictures of it from the outside. [Wink] How big is it? [dunno] Geesh, I wish I had something like that, but I don't think I would have the room for it. [Frown]

Hi everyone,

Thanks for all your kind comments. [kissies]

Yes it is a big greenhouse, but I'm not sure of the size, I've been meaning to ask my hubby but keep forgeting the minute I'm off the computer.

The reason I have so many plants inside my greenhouse is because of the early frosts in our area here. All my outside squash and zucchini are gone now, but those in the greenhouse are still doing fine.

Other than mildew right now and having no bees in our area so I had to pollinate by hand thro' the summer, I've actually had a great year.

No I won't be using it in winter, Im only ok till it gets really cold. I do fire up the heater in spring when I start all my seedlings. I also start a lot of flowers, selling some to friends and neighbors. Helps pay for a few bills and I love to do this.

I'm from Alberta. Sunny beautiful Alberta, but oh the wind. Good for all our windmills going up now, but it sure hurts those plants somedays.

I hope you catch this post.........I planted peppers outside and they got rot on the bottom.........Can I do anything to stop the rot or is the whole plant doomed? Anything I can do to stop it??? Thanks!!

It really is a beautiful set up, Rosepetal.
Looks very professional too.
Get the feeling that we're all impressed by your greenhouse and your harvest? [wavey] [thumb]

Wannerk,
Do a FORUM SEARCH and type in BER or BLOSSOM END ROT.. you should find results and help with it...
*#1. It's a watering problem and #2. It's a Calcium deficency in the soil problem*
