New house and want to grow!

Mike Leahy asked 7 years ago

New house nearly ready and we are putting gravel provisionally around most of house. 0.25 acre site. I want to start growing veg. Should i just get greenhouse ? or leave some ground as is for a tunnell ? or just leave some ground and grow direct in that. Aim is to grow kale / potatoes / onions – just enough for small family. Hopefully strawberries etc in greenhouse. Want to get this right cos if i get gravel all over then i might regret it or can i do everything i need in a greenhouse?

Much depends on what you want to grow. If you want to grow vegetables, most of these are grown in the open ground, but there are also greenhouse crops, and the greenhouse can be used to raise plants for outdoor growing. Access to the soil of the greenhouse should be retained as it saves on watering.
