Im mild climates the greenhouse allows for growing year round. All year growing can be achieved by using water jugs or barrels for thermal mass.
In cooler climate this greenhouse allows growers to extend their outdoor growing season by several months! I use to have to wait until May after last frost to grow outside and plants died by early October. After making this greenhouse I was able to start seedlings in the greenhouse in March and the extra warmth & protection the greenhouse provides made the plants grow stronger, healthier and more bountiful for transplant earlier, and I was able to start another cycle of cool weather crops in September and harvest in late November!
