    Default Almost greenhouse time !

    I should have my starts going in a couple of weeks ! I built this greenhouse 2 years ago, and this is the 2nd summer I will have a go at growing LOTS of peppers, tomatoes, and other misc. veggies. I had pretty good success 2 years ago. I'm going to try to grow at least 100-150 plants in the greenhouse. What is the best way of doing that in regards to utilizing the space? Shelving? Wood-framed boxes? hangers? All the above? The first year I utilized all the floor space with pots, but never installed shelves (it was an introductory year of planting for me). Any ideas on how I can utilize the space more efficiently, especially with so many different varieties of veggies? Thanks !

    structure complete...except i need to add an exhaust heater and a ground level one way vent. It was getting over 100 deg on a 40 degree day. With the introduction of the exhaust heater with a thermostat, I kept the greenhouse between 80-85 degrees all day.
