Beautiful Blooms in Northern New Mexico Greenhouse – March 2014

Geodesic Greenhouse in New MexicoCheck 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.”

Kyle joined the Growing Spaces team in 2015, and enjoys being involved in all the exciting projects and developments happening around here!I graduated from Pagosa Springs High School in 2009 and moved to Gunnison, Colorado to pursue a degree in Environmental Studies. After graduating from Western State Colorado University, I moved back to my home town Pagosa Springs. Since moving back home in 2013, I have been working to develop a farm in Arboles. In my spare time, one may find me backpacking in the wilderness, cruising on a mountain bike, slacklining in the park, or skiing Wolf Creek. I also enjoy creating art when I am not outdoors. The mediums that I enjoy working with are yarn, canvas and paint, and clay. I have been experimenting with aquapoinics and am always excited to share knowledge on the subject with others.

    • 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.
