Excuse grammar im typing on a phone.
Does anyone have experience growing greens all winter in michigan? I want to get eliot colemans book but a certain review said that mich gets much less sun than main in winter. Is this that persons own thought on it or a valid point? Would the addition of a couple fluorescents make sence to supplement particular dark weeks or months?

Thanks for the time spent answering any of this.

Orland,

I put your question to google and up came a few forums of people talking of their winter
gardening. One mentioned planting now for later results. There is a pinterest post on this,
those are always great for photos and if you follow the photo by clicking a few times
you will reach the author's website or blog. Someone even mentioned Elliott's book.

Winter Gardening in Michigan

I was doing some posting to a thread on "pit house" or Walipini greenhouses over
the weekend.

Here is the link to that thread Underground Greenhouse

The various posters talk about their own Winter versions, some are not dug in but
still produce veggies.
 
yeah, but ... what would PIE do? Especially concerning this tiny ad:
