Quotes from "Modern Rustic: Greenhouses and Gardening":

"When it comes to solar heating a small attached greenhouse, I have experimented with many different methods over the years. The method that works best for me is to use water as a natural heat sink. I took a row of 5 gallon buckets, painted them black and filled them with water. Then I placed them at the lowest level of the south face of the greenhouse.
Through the course of the day the sun beams on the buckets heating the water.

On a sunny day in early May I’ve had the water in the buckets reach as high as 120 degrees. Just like the compost heater, this means you need to make sure you have adequate ventilation during the day. At night that heat is then released into the greenhouse. Since cold air sinks, it pools on the floor where it is absorbed by the warm water in the buckets. Before the cold can build high enough to frost burn the plants it must first freeze a skim ice on the top of the buckets."

"These days there are a lot of options you can choose from when it comes to grow lights. There is more than enough science behind it to give you a nose bleed.
Here is a quick summary of your available options and what you need to know."

"For the casual home gardener preparing your garden for spring can be as simple as running a rotary tiller thru the dirt the day before you shove some plants in the ground. Honestly, simply loosening the soil before planting will yield a garden where most plants can grow. However, for someone who’s lifestyle relies on subsistence gardening to both make it through the year as well as improve quality of life, this simplistic approach invites disaster.

Over the course of time, plants deplete the nutrients in the soil. Not only does this impact the plants, but it also reduces the number of beneficial microbes living in the soil. All of this leads to vegetables with stunted growth and opens the door for soil borne diseases.

If you want your plants to have a vigorous growing season, then it requires...."

"While hybrid vegetables are made by seed companies and pollinated by interns wearing white lab coats in a sterile facility, Heirloom vegetables are the product of nature. They are pollinated by the magic of wind and bees."

If you choose to grow your own, the good news is, finding a reputable vendor who sells heirloom seeds has never been easier. "

A successful garden is the backbone of subsistence homesteading. Modern Rustic: Greenhouses and Gardening is your guide to your own successful garden.
