All this for a salad

All this for a salad it but it was worth the effort.

After I got inside the GH this is what I harvested. It will be served with stuffed eggplant from this summers garden.

While I was there I looked around to see how everything was doing. The peppers are doing fine but it will probably be time to plant them outside before I get any.

The tomatoes are doing great and there are two plants with many green toms.

I should have a steady supply. Sure beats store bought. John

How warm do you keep it in your green house and how do you keep it warm?

The GH is a 8' X 8' Rion and I heat it with a 10k btu NG vent-less heater. It maintains 55 deg F at night on the lowest setting. When the sun comes out it takes over and the heater shuts down to pilot. John

That looks FABULOUS (the salad, the greenhouse, and even the snow -- from a distance, of course)! Thanks for sharing!

If I may ask a completely unrelated question -- how did you preserve eggplant from the summer harvest? I want to grow eggplant this year (it's one of THE best vegetables on earth) but can't imagine it would taste the same frozen or canned.

Thanks again for sharing and hope you enjoyed that salad!

Should I bring my own bib or do you have an extra? :lol:
