Build a $300 underground greenhouse for year-round gardening
Greenhouses are usually glazed structures, but are typically expensive to construct and heat throughout the winter. A much more affordable and effective alternative to glass greenhouses is the walipini (an Aymara Indian word for a “place of warmth”), also known as an underground or pit greenhouse.

“Slot Together Pyramid Garden Planter”
Step-by-step instructions here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Slot-Together-Pyramid-Garden-Planter/
Kids would absolutely love one of these and all it takes is bunch of old bike rims, a packet of cable ties, some hard work and a few creeping plants. Let your creativity run this year.
If you made this bigger, and covered it in plastic sheeting then you could have a dome greenhouse.
Guess what I am doing tonight! #homesteading #farming #bees #honey
33 trays moved into the greenhouse. A dozen more in the house. Even more starting. #spring #homesteading
