Won a gorgeous greenhouse from the Price is Right ( I kissed Bob twice) and want to plant some veggies but in San Diego where I live it gets hot in the summer..it has 2 large pop up windows and a sliding door and we plumbed it for water.
What is good to plant in the summer or do I need to just wait till it gets cooler?
No one has any advice for you. We all want to see the YouTube of you on the Price is Right!!!! "Beach Chick! Come on Dooooooooooown!!!!! You're the next contestant on ....
Actually, you don't need a greenhouse in San Diego in the summer. I guess if I had it in San Diego, I'd start growing orchids.
We are in the Oakland,CA and have a green house. It is mainly for orchids during cool weather. But my husband starts tomatoes, peppers, carrots, herbs, during the cool weather. When it starts warming up, they are then set out in the garden,
Grow something that smells nice that likes humidity, like gardenia or plumeria, around the edges. Add a cooling fan, a fountain, and a chaise lounge. Or you could go with the hot rock pit in the middle and make it a sweat lodge if you already have a pool to run out and jump into.
If you must do food, I wonder about things like strawberries, or if you want to go all 1970s hydroponic.
