Check out this New Mexico greenhouse. We recently received some lovely photos from the new owner of a 22′ Growing Dome Greenhouse in northern New Mexico. Here’s what Jack Langston had to share, “The Growing Dome is great – we had fresh lettuce and several other vegetable items all winter long. As you can see the peach tree is in full bloom and is now starting to produce fruit.”
Beautiful! I think I may add some houseplants to mine!
What kind of wood was used for the raised planting bed?
Hello Debbie, Jack used 4in. x 4in. lumber. If you decide to use lumber, of any kind, we recommend lining the bed wall with either sheet metal or plastic to ensure that the wood lasts longer. Thanks for the great question! – Stacey
The wood in the pictures looks like redwood. We used treated lumber for ours (dome erected in 2010, hydroponics pulled out in 2012 and more dirt beds installed), and as Admin/Stacey suggested, lined the dirt side of all wood with metal flashing.
We harvest tomatoes all winter, into spring–great fun trudging through the snow and ice to do so. Clematis, jasmine, flowering almond, candy tuft, Gerber daisies, chives, chard and volunteer shamrocks all trying to outdo each other. Thanks for sharing your dome with us.
