Elk’s Bluff Winter Greenhouse feeds a growing appetite for local foods
MONTEVIDEO — No airline ticket to a southern destination required for Tim Elkington.
He makes his escape from winter every day with a short stroll through a big, red barn, which leads him right into the passive solar greenhouse he attached to it last summer.
He and his wife Shelly call it Elk’s Bluff Winter Greenhouse.
It’s filled with thriving, cool-weather greens of all types, from aromatic arugula, cabbage and Swish chard to butter crunch lettuce.
