Winter Greenhouse Update

I just thought I’d post an update about my mini greenhouse experiment. I planted lettuce, broccoli, oat grass (as a winter cover crop) and a transplanted rosemary bush in the greenhouse earlier in the fall (here’s the original post about it), and today the rosemary and grass are doing quite well, but unfortunately the broccoli is pretty non-existent and the lettuce leaves are only about an inch tall.

So far I would call it a semi-success, because the space inside the greenhouse has stayed warm enough to sustain plant life. I’ve had to open up the greenhouse on warmer days to air it out, because the damp weather has caused it to get a little moldy in there, but overall it’s been very low-maintenance.

And, as you can see, my cats are pretty fond of it.
