Success gardening indoors in Winter on the Oregon Coast! Gabrielle and Urs built their 22′ Growing Dome in the spring of 2012. They live on the central Oregon coast where rain and clouds are very common. Since the Growing Dome is a solar-powered greenhouse, they knew they would have to make some adjustments during the cloudy, rainy winters, but with those adjustments everything has been going very well. Here’s their most recent update with a few photos:
All works fine. Tomatoes are still ripening, salads, rainbow chard, rosemary, sage, thyme, flowers and the kois in the pond are doing just fine.
Lemon and banana trees do well – just a great little paradise.
Actually I expected this system to do well, but I am surprised about how well it works here in the middle of this forest.
I admit, I cheat a little bit with a couple of growing lights – since it is so dark here Nov, Dec and January. But looking at the garden outside and inside I have to say it exceeds all my boldest expectations.
… have fun with some our pics taken the last 10 days.”
