David LaFerney at The Door Garden found away to make a green house in his back yard by spending only $50 bucks. “Grated” he claims, “I already had some of the materials, but even if I had bought everything new just for this project It would still only come to about $120 – less than a dollar per square ft.” If you have the room in your yard then I would take a recommend taking a look at his simple design.
With gas prices and energy costs rising, produce and dairy costs will continue to increase as well. One of the things I remember my grandma saying about the depression was that she learned to plant her own garden. Having your own garden is rewarding and one day could be a necessity.
