Greenhouse veggie tips for the person who wants to take charge of their health by growing their own vegetables year round, including:- Preparing your soil- How and what to plant- Care and feeding of your plants- Temperature control- Pollination- Bugs- General greenhouse maintenanceDespite the prevailing myths - we love our veggies. Fresh veggies, that is. It's only in the modern age of convenient, long-distance transportation that veggies fell out of flavor. No, not a typo. It's fairly common knowledge that creating vegetables that could travel long distance was like creating the perfect Twinkie. Flavor and nutritional value were sacrificed for convenience, to create the ideal packing material...er...packable material. From the 1950's on, most kids grew up with plastic-like veggies that traveled well and tasted like Grandpa's dirty socks, only not as flavorful. If you've picked up this book, however, I probably don't need to convince you that home-grown veggies are not only tasty, they're better for you. I didn't realize how important fresh vegetables were until my health took a nose dive. That's when our family, committed to growing as much of our own food as possible, stepped into the greenhouse world, a world that has provided hours of joy and entertainment along with the fresh produce that helped me regain my health. Greenhouses have inspired me to live a healthier, happier life. They can inspire you, too.
In 2007 Louisa was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. That started her on a path to growing her own produce year round, improving the family's food, nutrition, and health. Jim designed a successful greenhouse system specifically for growing at 5,000' elevation in the Sierra Nevada mountains. The original greenhouse has been growing abundantly spring, summer, fall and winter for the last four years. They have added to the original greenhouse, trying out various sizes and configurations and now have plenty of produce to share. Louisa is a published writer with stories in various Star Trek and Denise Little anthologies.
