Hey y'all!  I'm still learning and in the planning and layout stages for my garden.....bye bye crappy lawn!  I'm just curious for those of you who have a greenhouse......what's the best size as a hobby gardener......I plan on planting all year since I live in a mild area of the mid south and also would like to have a place to sit and have coffee and meditate when not actively tinkering......

Appreciate any thoughts......

Cost is a consideration but plan on building it myself with a carpenter friend's help

Enjoy the weekend! 
John

Hi Java John, A greenhouse may not be needed in the milder areas of the South. Of course, that depends on the individual year and if Mother Nature is behaving. Most winter crops are frost tolerant. Individual frames and plastic over the individual beds may be all you need. Yolos and I (Sanderson in CA) cover the beds that are active in the winter with frames and heavy mil plastic. Sometimes, two layers of plastic. Maybe old fashion Christmas lights inside for hard freezes. It does require opening up on warmer sunny days to prevent the plants from baking. But, that would be needed even with a stand-alone, walk-around green house.

I would say a greenhouse tall enough for you to stand up in, 2' wide beds down 2 sides and at least a 3' isle down the middle. So, 7-8' (door side) x 10'. ?? Turan in Montana has a mandatory green house just for certain crops to grow in the summer. It is wood framed, long, has beds running down both long sides and pots/containers in a row down the middle. It is tall and strong enough for overhead support for the tomatoes.
