  1. I just read about you through GNOWFLINS. Finally! Someone who lives very close (knows how hard it can be to be self sufficient in our climate!), likes to live simply, eat real food and garden. Thank you for writing about what you are learning! I look forward to gleaning from you!:)

  2. Love this, what great pictures! I am fascinated by the geodome green house you have and am going to do some research on it. How early (in what month) can you transplant your tomatoes from your home into the green house?

    Dawn :)

    1. Thank you Dawn! We are actually working on an how to instruction for the GeoDome.

      An unheated greenhouse covered with plastic gives you about 4 degrees more or less, depending on the thickness of the plastic. A frost blanket used in a greenhouse would double the protection. I started some peas and radishes in mid March in a greenhouse with two layers of frost blankets. However, with the the tomatoes I waited till mid May, since tomatoes do not tolerate any frost and our weather is very unpredictable. Hope that helps.

    2. It does! Thank you, Anna :) I will keep an eye out for your how-to instructions for the GeoDome!


    3. Not sure if you have seen it yet, but the how to instruction for the GeoDome is online!
