Hello from Anchorage, Alaska

Post  graywolf907 on 8/17/2014, 8:10 pm

Not much to offer at this time, just happened across the forum and I am interested in building a greenhouse and doing a bit of gentleman gardening.

Welcome graywolf!

With building a greenhouse, you'll be starting on an interesting adventure. A few people around here have them too, and they may already have made observations and comments that could be of use to you. Lynn, from Brookings, Oregon, grows in a 24 x 60 foot greenhouse and you can find her in the "Article in today's local paper" thread.

Welcome from the Fla Treasure Coast! We are a looooong way apart. Can't give any input on greenhouses.
How long is the growing season up there?
