Garden Plans > 2021: GoldenGaits Greenhouse

About this Garden Plan

Our heated greenhouse in the Colorado Rockies at 9,000 feet keeps us growing vegetables year-round. The "in-ground dates" feature is used extensively, as plants are rotated throughout the greenhouse all year. The month of January is shown, with some cover crops planted at this time. Raised beds are 28" tall. The odd shape is due to affixing the greenhouse to the side of our round house. 3 cold frames are offset, outside the greenhouse.
