Winter salad greens mini greenhouse project

Supply your table with fresh salad greens all winter long with this simple and affordable trick…

Winter has arrived here in Ohio, and as we huddle indoors around the fire, dreaming of warm spring days to come, I sometimes think wistfully of those long-ago Arkansas winters when it was not unusual to have a few 60-degree days even in the heart of winter…

The trick I’m sharing with you today won’t work so well here in Ohio, but if you live in a more Southern climate (like Zone 6 or warmer), you may well be able to grow your own fresh salad greens all winter long using this simple setup that should cost you less than $20 (a lot less if you already have some of the supplies).

This “mini-greenhouse” idea works best for small greens such as lettuce, salad greens, and baby kale or spinach, and you will need a small bit of space in a sunny location, but even a patio will work – and it’s super-simple and easy to set up.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
