These plans are essentially a durable oversized cold frame intended to grow many plants, including ones of considerable size.
Also, "growing plants in a greenhouse" can provide your family with nutritious vegetables and will definitiely cut down on what you have to buy from the store.
"Starting a greenhouse" requires little upfront capital if you are willing to put in the work. In my opinion, it's easier to care for then an outside garden.
I do not heat mine during the winter months, therefore, it goes dormant.
(correction...I now am experimenting by heating my greenhouse with a wood stove)
It only cost my labor of going out and cutting wood and keeping the fire going.
Just make sure if you go this route, that you have a fan hanging up high to distribute the heat. I also have a sheet of tin hanging about 3 feet above my wood stove to make sure I don't melt my 6 ml. plastic if my fire gets to hot.
Cheap plastic won't work! It will deteriorate very quickly and become brittle. I recommend this product from Amazon. It is a 6-mil plastic that you can rely on. It has lasted me several years and gives me two replacements being 100 feet long. You will have to cut it to make it a 40' x 34' (My plans say 30' x 34'.....so you will just roll up the extra on both sides of the bottom which creates extra strength. hat leaves you with a roll of 40' x 66'. Two Replacements! 30' x 33'

The only disadvantage I can see, is that you will have to cut it.
In March, I'm ready to begin planting again.
