You can grow your own food. And we can help!


I live in the city but have a raised bed that abuts the south side of my house. I've been growing tomatoes, onions, spaghetti squash and peas all summer, and am planning on creating a temporary greenhouse over the space to grow herbs, lettuce, etc. Any suggestions on materials/where to get them/what to grow? My living room window right above the bed, and my hope is that in the winter I can open the window and get some warm fresh air in from the greenhouse... But, it can't be a permanent structure because I'm renting... haha
How wide is your raised bed? How tall is your window? Could you take a picture for us? That would help me propose a solution.
