This is a huge step for step us towards our self sufficient goals. A four season, year round greenhouse heated with wood. It’s a tough thing here in the north. A winter garden in the north might be considered impossible by some folks. Heating a greenhouse is not a simple task. There are many options to explore. We’ve experimented with how to heat a greenhouse in the past. Heating our greenhouse with compost. Thermal mass using large barrels and bins full of water. We’re now moving on to heating our winter greenhouse with wood. In the future we’ll add both compost heat and thermal mass heat back into the mix, but now that we have a woodstove installed in the greenhouse, we can get to work on some early crops, growing food in the winter in a greenhouse. The wood stove is rated for about 10 times the size of our greenhouse.
