A greenhouse of your own

So you've finally plunged your fork into the compost and planted a garden. You've discovered the delicious satisfaction of growing your own produce and now, you couldn't imagine a summer without dirt-fresh tomatoes and squash pulled from your own soil.

Now that you're thoroughly hooked on your kitchen garden, you may be feeling the itch to advance it to a new level. And one of the next logical steps is growing your own starts from seed.

If you're going to sow inside, March is the right time to get your summer crop going so they'll be ready to put in the ground by May — things like onions, lettuce, brassicas, chard, leeks, parsley, tomatoes, peppers and eggplant.

While you could find space in the garage for tables, heating pads and grow lights, you could also just bypass the baby steps and advance right to the big stuff — a cold frame or small greenhouse of your own.
