  1. I think this is the most fantastic idea I’ve heard in a while!!! I grew up on my grandparent’s house/farm and I remember spending hours in the greenhouse. It just doesn’t get any better than that. You really feel that the plants are your pets, you get to visit them each day, you strive to nourish them and in return, they nourish you back. My favorite experience in the greenhouse is that the sun shines throw the glass and it can get quite warm in the spring/summer, but it feels like you are in a mini rain forest. You somehow feel refreshed and entertained at the same time. Having a greenhouse is definitely something that I would like to do once I purchase a house, having oranges sounds just amazing. Lemons. I love spinach. Some other things we used to grow is radishes and I would put there some rows of seasonings like green onions, oregano, basil, some tomatoes. It’s just mesmerizing how so many plants grow together in a relatively small place.
