Save money by growing your own organics simply and easily with these frugal greenhouse plans.   The taste (and nutrition) of home grown food is much better than what you’ll find at the grocery store and your cost is almost free. This hoop house green house is going to be 11 feet wide and 15 feet long, and will be about seven and a half feet tall in the center. You could make one of these as long or as short as you want, but using this design the width needs to be between 10-12 feet.

Burpee Gardening

Gardening saves money over the high cost of produce in stores and you can even use kitchen scraps to get you started!  Things like the root end of carrots, romaine lettuce and celery can be used to start new plants.  The seeds from just a few tomatoes and peppers can keep your family in salsa and pasta sauce for a long time!  Composting your kitchen waste will not only reduce your trash output but will become fertilizer for your garden!

Here are our tomato plants, all started from the seeds of the tomatoes we ate!

Check out my post on Quick & Easy Composting to get you started now so you’ll be ready to get started with the spring thaw!  Also know what else you can compost so you can get the most out of your composting from day one with this article.

With the added benefit of a greenhouse, your plants are safe from the elements and you’re safe from things like bunnies that want to eat your tomatoes and removing weeds!  Growing your own allows you to make it all organic and pesticide free at a minute fraction of grocery store prices!

Home gardening also allows you to stock up… make your own jellies & jams, chutneys, salsas, pasta sauces and more!  Fill your pantry without emptying your wallet.
