I've recently moved here and the growing season is certainly shorter than what I am use too, just wondering how many of you put out a garden, what you grow & wether or not a greenhouse is a nessecry investment. Thanks, this may be a stupid question, but I am serious.

This is late but you can prep for next year. I start some seed in the spring inside then move them to raised beds when the last freeze is over. Then the bigger stuff I plan outside but none in a green house. I would just recommend having a back up to cover them later in the season. We throw sheets or plastic over if its a freeze warning like tonight.

It would be wise to have a green house and heat for the winter. It can get down to thirty below zero there. It did one you when I lived there. I spent my childhood there.

Gardens are a possibility but it has to be fast growing stuff. I grew tomatoes and beans. Peas and things like that. Corn didn't stand a chance cause the season is usually not long enough. You have to plant on mid to late June and harvest before mid September. If you plant broccoli and cabbage, cauliflower and such in July you can get a get a crop before it gets too cold. If you had a green house you could have some good vegetables year round. That's what I would do. Hope that helps.
