Welcome to the Coleman Greenhouse, located near Port Orchard, Washington. This site is geared toward the backyard gardener, particularly those living in the Pacific Northwest, though gardeners everywhere may benefit from it. It started as a "gardening diary," so that I might have a permanent record to look back on in future years when planning new gardens. It's still that - but has evolved into an interactive resource for other gardeners - like you - to enjoy and participate in.

After two dismal Pacific Northwest La Nina gardening seasons, I decided it was time to build a greenhouse. Many of the supplies (glass, wood) were totally free through the FreeCycle network. Click here for information, and photos of the process from start to finish. You, too, can build a greenhouse!
