Beginning a Garden - The In-Ground Garden Bed

Thursday, July 9, 2020

And, last, but not least in our gardening series, the in-ground garden bed.   This is the most traditional of our garden bed options.  There are many advantages as well as a few disadvantages to this option.

For many, this is the only type of garden bed that they will consider as it has been the tried and true garden choice for their family for generations.  If you have the right equipment and enough space, it just makes sense.   Some of the tools you will need to make this a feasible option are a tiller, a tractor with a tiller, a sod cutter, or a sharp spade.

Some advantages include using the existing soil.  It is always advantageous to take a soil sample in for testing and amend the soil as recommended.   Another advantage is that it is the most economical if you have the equipment to set up the garden plot, as mentioned above.  It can be less permanent,  requires less watering, and is typically much easier to irrigate.  

As with the other options included in this series, there are factors that must be considered when implementing this option.   You must choose the right location.  This should consist of a somewhat level site that will provide good drainage and be 6-8 hours per day in the sun. It is preferable to have it near your house for the sake of convenience.

This type of bed may require more weeding and the addition of nutrients throughout the garden season.  But, when maintained regularly, these obstacles can be kept in check.

This is a great way to grow a garden and makes the most sense for so many!  

Beginning a Garden - Container Gardening

Tuesday, June 23, 2020


Container Gardening

This is one of our favorites, and we've used it for years! Container gardening is often the unsung hero of gardening.  It seems like the trend has been moving toward raised beds, and there will always be the traditional in-ground garden.  But, IF you haven't tried container gardening - YOU SHOULD! 

There are so many benefits, and honestly, only a few things could be viewed as a bit difficult; but, not something that should cause you to shy away from it. There are so many vegetables and fruits that thrive in pots and smaller garden spaces - a container allows for quick and easy garden set-ups that can yield an abundant harvest with minimal effort.

There are countless reasons you should try this type of gardening or even add it to your gardening plan. Some of those include: if you are limited on outdoor space, the convenience of having fresh vegetables and fruit right outside your back door (or, front, in some cases), there is no need to prepare a garden bed or build raised containers, easy access for harvesting and watering, can be moved around and relocated, on the less expensive side of other options and probably my favorite......NO WEEDING.

Here are a few things to consider:  
  • Choose a location that, like other garden options, will receive at least 6-8 hours of full sun daily.
  • Collect your containers. You can use some you have on hand, purchase to match the aesthetics of your patio or porch, collect them from friends or family or collect containers that may not necessarily be intended as a garden pot, but would work just as well. 
  • Make sure your containers have holes in the bottom to allow for proper drainage. If they don't - drill some. It's an easy fix, but is a critical factor.  
  • Use an excellent purchased potting soil or mix one of your own. It needs to be a lightweight, high-quality mix.  
  • Containers require watering more often. Check the soil moisture every day as they usually require at least daily watering; however, on days with higher temperatures, they may need watering in the morning and evening to keep the plants well hydrated. 
  • Fertilization can assist in your harvest in a big way. Often a soil-released fertilizer works perfectly.    
  • Mulch can be added to aid in moisture retention.  
  • Select vegetables and fruits that thrive in a smaller space such as strawberries, peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, swiss chard, kale, herbs that thrive but aren't too big such as melons.  The list goes on! 

Container Garden

Whether you term it an urban garden, a patio, or a porch garden - if you are limited by space, this is a perfect alternative to try! It is well worth the effort and is an enjoyable space to visit daily. 

Beginning a Garden - Raised Beds

Tuesday, May 26, 2020

You are ready to start your garden - but which bed option do you go with?  There are many options!  This series will focus on raised beds,  container gardening, and the traditional in-ground garden bed.

We are going to start with the ever-growing popular, raised bed garden;  and why this should be an option to consider.  To a traditional gardener, a few years back, this seemed like a compromise to conventional gardening - almost like you were cheating in the way of life of gardening.  However, since it is becoming more and more popular, even the most traditional gardeners now agree, this is definitely a garden to consider.  And, so many are diving in wholeheartedly after they experience just a season with raised beds.  

There are so many reasons why raised beds have gained such popularity.  Some of the main reasons are that you can pretty much make them fit any space, place them anywhere, use a multitude of materials, gain better control, and have a fruitful bounty.   There aren't too many negatives to this garden plan if done correctly. 

garden shovel

Let's explore a countless list of reasons as to why this option should be considered.  First,  the most crucial aspect of your garden is often determined to be the soil.   If you live in a place as I do, that soil in your backyard has a very high concentration of clay.  That is clearly not the most nutrient-rich source in which to plant in. Every area of the country has a different soil base that often has to be worked at in a hard way to be overcome to garden effectively and efficiently in it.   But, with a raised bed, you are in complete control by choosing each aspect you add to your beds, and you can amend as needed.  You can achieve optional soil quality with somewhat minimal effort. With soil that is of high quality, the starting point of your garden will put you in a position to have a successful gardening experience and produce an abundant crop. Of course, other elemental issues come into play in a critical manner, such as sun, water, and drainage.  But, your soil is of utmost importance and is the area that most avid gardeners will invest the most in. 

Then there is the simple but important aspect of the look of the garden or the aesthetics.   You can spend your days looking at Pinterest and planning for that dreamy garden.  But you CAN make it happen!   A huge positive is that you can create that beautiful small space that produces a prolific harvest.  It is so much easier to maintain than acres and acres of traditional garden space.   They are often on the more compact size, but not always.  It's entirely up to you, your imagination, your budget, and your available space. The area can be as large as your imagination and budget.  But, a small scale raised bed garden can be every bit as swoon-worthy while doing what gardens do best, grow your food and florals in abundance.  

Easier maintenance is a definite bonus to raised bed gardening.  The elevated height makes access much easier for those who may have difficulty bending, stooping, and kneeling.   Due to how they are built, you can often sit on the edges, and as long as the raised bed is not over 4 feet across, most can reach easily into the center from both directions.   The recommended height is usually at least 10 inches, but it can be as little as 6 inches.  However, you can keep adding to the height until you are content with it.  Just keep in mind, additional height will often mean more garden soil needed to fill.  

gardening raised bed

You can typically begin planting earlier in a raised bed due to the fact the soil warms quicker than a traditional garden when springtime arrives.  It allows you to garden earlier, but you can often garden later in the season as it's easier to cover crops when the cooler temperatures start arriving. 

Another positive is that you don't have to own heavy equipment such as a tiller to use all season.  When raised beds are correctly installed, weeding is so much easier and is often done by hand or a simple tool like a hula hoe.   As mentioned above, the overall maintenance is a definite benefit.  But, only needing a few simple tools makes it easier, lends for better storage, and is much more cost-effective. 

The list could go on and on as to why raised bed a regaining so much popularity. But, the primary reasons are outlined above.  You can always start with one and add to them as you want and as space allows.  It's a great way to jump into the garden or switch your typical garden plan with one as the positives outweigh other options.   It's something to consider no matter where you are on the experience spectrum as a gardener.

Beginning a Garden - Choosing the Location

Thursday, April 16, 2020


Welcome to your very first step in planning for your garden, choosing the location! This is an exciting place to be, the beginning of your adventure into gardening! For some, this task is relatively easy; for others, it can be a challenge in simply committing to a particular spot.  Most of the questions we see are, Is it sunny enough?  Do I have good soil?  And, most frequently, How do I even start?  Although several factors need to be considered, we are going to try to keep this as simple as possible and provide some key elements of consideration.

vegetable garden

First, pick a location that has an abundance of sunshine.   Many plants, particularly vegetables, need plenty of sun throughout the day.  The overall recommendation is an average of at least 8 hours of full sun.   Keep in mind that the sun sets in varying locations throughout the year, and once trees leaf out, more shade may fall upon your garden plot.  Keep a watchful eye on different areas that you have in mind in helping to decide the optimal location.  Also, watch your shadows, mainly if it is close to your house or a tree line as the sun can be blocked as the sun is in different positions throughout the day. 

Next, and although this can be critical, so many don't realize the importance of this factor.  But, it's the factor of convenience.  If your location is not within sight - out of sight can become out of mind.  When your garden is easy to get to and see, you will naturally spend more time tending to it lending to its success.

Third, soil quality is imperative.  Healthy soil = healthy plants.  To grow an abundance of nutritious vegetables, you want the perfect combination of fertile soil that drains well.   One thing that is always recommended is obtaining a soil test by your local extension office.  They are often free or offered at a relatively low cost.  This will assess the soil and provide recommendations on amendments if needed.

Then you must consider a water source.  There are several ways to help keep your plants thriving and hydrated, including mulch - however, between rain showers, you will more often than not need to spend time watering.  Having a water source nearby is imperative.   The more convenient, the easier it will be to utilize.

These are some key but very simple steps.  Next up in our series will be what type of garden bed will work best for you.  We will be exploring traditional in-ground beds, raised garden beds, and even containers.  

Beginning a Garden

Tuesday, April 7, 2020

Mansfield, AR 72944, USA
For years, we have worked with numerous customers during the purchase process of our greenhouses; all had a similar goal in mind, but all were coming from different levels of gardening experience.  Some simply wanted a greenhouse to hobby garden and over-winter their plants.  Some utilized it for their business by growing seedlings to sell, or seedlings to plant either by way of vegetables or cut-flower farms. And, some found themselves wanting one to be more self-reliant, some with and some without gardening experience.

We have had an influx of calls and questions from those wanting to start a garden over the past few weeks - so, we are launching a series here on the blog for beginning gardeners.  Today, we will touch a bit on the history of the garden and why we see such a resurgence.   Over the month, we will cover all things gardening - from selecting your location, soil, seedlings, and everything in between, ending with a garden harvest.  But, then, expanding your garden inside your greenhouse to provide fresh vegetables throughout the winter months.

A lot has changed in our world recently and at a fast pace.  We have witnessed an explosion in the gardening world.  "Our country and the entire world are being challenged in a way we have never experienced.  In response, many Americans are taking appropriate measures by cocooning at home and are striving to be more self-reliant for as much of their own fresh food as possible," stated Tom Johns, President of Territorial Seed Company.  


vegetable garden

We personally grow our seedlings in our greenhouse and then harden them before planting into our garden.  Now more than ever,  people are eager to grow their own food.  And, often, this will be the first time they've endeavored to do so.   

Whether it's out of a need or want to grow their own food, or simply a new hobby to busy themselves while being at home more, the gardening world is active. Even before the recent events with COVID19, we have witnessed this old idea and practice resurfacing.  Schools have been implementing gardening classes as almost a lost art and essential life skill.  States and businesses are recognizing a need for this and are providing grants. Families are learning that a farm or huge garden plot isn't needed;  food in abundance can be grown in containers scatted about a patio.  There are so many ways to make this dream a reality. 


tomato vegetable gardening

Currently, there is a massive pull toward family gardening.  Seed suppliers are reporting record-breaking sales. Online seed and garden suppliers have had to shut down online ordering systems to replenish and keep up with the demand.  The reports are numerous; people want to start a garden as soon as possible.   

While life has slowed a bit for some of us, gardening is proving to be relaxing and recreational, but also therapeutic. It's allowing such a positive experience for families to work together when so many are home together now.  And, the reward can be bountiful in more ways than one. From a historical perspective, gardens have been an essential foundation for our country during trying times. From the Liberty Gardens of WWI and the Victory Gardens of WWII - gardens have been something Americans have turned to time and time again.  "As the war ended, and gardens took over American backyards, those earnest posters of cheery home gardeners and fierce-looking vegetables became a relic of wartime scarcity - until a few weeks ago." said the New York Times the first week of spring.  

According to Tamasin Pemberton, from Perennial Harvest, she admitted that enthusiasm had been a little lackluster until now.  "The pandemic seemed to have prompted an overdue revival," she said, and a chance to share her passion with an audience who were really listening.  It's a lot of people in their 30s and 40s with young families.  People who are really keen but haven't got any experience whatsoever.  It has touched on people's fears about food security - they've seen how bare the shelves are."  

For those raised on farms or with parents or grandparents who were avid gardeners, growing a garden may be in your DNA.  But, with our recent influx of questions from beginning gardeners, we wanted to give you a basic plan to start your garden for the first time in this series.  Our next post will cover selecting your location and getting it ready.   We hope you will return and follow this series!

Why Do I Need a Greenhouse?

Monday, March 9, 2020

Mansfield, AR 72944, USA



                       

Typically when we receive a call from a customer to place an order for one of our greenhouses, they have already answered the question, "Why do I need or want a greenhouse?" And they have done their research on why specifically purchase a Yoderbilt Greenhouse (this was covered in our last blog post). But, in summary of that question, they choose a Yoderbilt Greenhouse as they are of the highest quality, a beautiful greenhouse for your space, and one that is highly functional with extreme attention to detail. We invest our time into your greenhouse from the moment we take your call with questions, placement of the order, and well past the time we have delivered.

Along the way, we've had many conversations that give us insight as to why a greenhouse was a good fit for them in their gardening endeavors. We hope to shed some light on this process for those considering one. We have spoken with a lot of people throughout the years, and we often hear the same statements made over and over. There are many different reasons, and we'll list those below, but a pattern we see and often hear is, "It's something they've always wanted at from a very young age." "It's a dream come true!" "I can grow my own food year-round." (in combination with the greenhouse, a garden/containers depending on your zone) "It's my beautiful get-away!" "It allows our family to be more self-sustaining." "I can have florals year-round." "I finally have my She-Shed." "I can grow organically." Although everyone purchases for their own reason, we've had the honor of dealing with so many customers and making certain our Yoderbilt Greenhouse serves and fulfills the need or desire they have identified for themselves as given us a great perspective from their viewpoint.

Personally, we built our first greenhouse years ago for a combination of reasons.  We wanted our family to be more self-sustaining, we wanted it to be well-made and beautiful and we had simply had always wanted one but couldn't find an affordable one to meet our standards.  So, after many attempts, we perfected the one we love and that our customers do as well.

Why Do I Need a Greenhouse? And, Things to Consider When Buying One. 

  • Being able to start your seedlings is a great way to get a jump start on the season. Gardening year-round? It's a wonderful option to have!  
  • People find great rewards in starting your plants from seed - from anticipation to harvest and everything in between. 
  • You have the means to grow your own healthy food year-round.  
  • Your food budget can be drastically cut. 
  • It lends to a more self-sustaining life.
  • It allows you to easily save and grow from your own seeds, making it possible to avoid having to purchase from commercial growers or local nurseries. 
  • It saves you money, for the price of some seeds, water and your time, you can produce massive amounts of food. 
  • It allows you to grow and manage your own food organically, saving money in the grocery store.  
  • You can have fresh vegetables year-round without pesticides. 
  • A greenhouse allows you to grow varieties of food and flowers that your local nursery does not carry.  
  • To fill your garden fast, it is the most affordable way.  
  • You can have fresh flowers to enjoy and share all year long.
  • You are no longer limited by a growing season.   
  • By getting an early start on the season, you can set out larger, hardened plants when the weather has warmed, and the risk of frost is gone.   
  • Fast-growing plants like annuals (such as sunflowers and zinnias) can be started 4-6 weeks before the last spring frost. 
  • Slow growing plants like perennials can be sown 10-12 weeks before the last spring frost.  
  • (Our) greenhouses are used by hobbyists as well as commercial growers. 
  • In many zones, seedlings can be started in a greenhouse in late January. And, depending on the crop, they can be started weekly after that. 
  • You have an all-in-one gardening location; a garden shed is not required.  
  • You can have consistent gardening with plant protection in an optimum environment.  
  • A beautiful, well-designed greenhouse can add to your landscaping, not take away. 
  • You can winter your plants, allowing you to have them again for spring instead of re-purchasing everything from a local nursery and starting over year after year.  
  • Every spring, you can spend hundreds of dollars on plants. Even in doing that, you often want more. With a greenhouse, you have the option to grow about as many seeds and varieties as you wish. 
  • You can grow an abundance and share with family, friends, and food banks. 
  • It makes it feasible to start your own seedling company, farmers market vendor, or jump into the growing cut flower market. It can yield a high return on your investment.  
  • A greenhouse can be great for your mental health (just ask someone who has one) as well as your physical health in keeping you active, outdoors (even when it's cold out, the greenhouse is warm and cozy), and doing something you love. 
  • A greenhouse purchase should be made with quality in mind; cheap greenhouses tend to have a very short functional life-span. 
  • It can be such a peaceful retreat and can give you hours of enjoyment, especially on those dark winter days.  
  • We've heard countless times from customers, to buy as big as you can afford, and that your site will allow.  
  • It allows you to propagate your plants on a large scale.

When is the best time to order a Yoderbilt Greenhouse?

Thursday, February 27, 2020






We often get asked when is the best time to order one of your greenhouses.  The answer is now.  We have a steady influx of orders year-round, but we have different peak seasons here at Yoderbilt in which our customers are ordering.  And, we are right in the middle of one of those peaks now.  Summer tends to slow down a bit, with the exception of last year.  The orders came in year round in an even pace.

Here in Arkansas, it seems like we've had countless dark, cloudy, rainy, cold days this year.  For weeks and weeks on end.  We currently include parts of Texas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Tennessee into our regular regional area.  We do occasionally go outside that area, but for the most part,  our weather can be similar.  With the cold and often rainy days of approaching spring,  that actually means it is the perfect time to be thinking about getting your greenhouse ordered and set-up.   We work diligently to get your greenhouse built and delivered once your purchase is made.



January through early summer is a busy time at Yoderbilt.  Many plants can be grown from fall straight through February and beyond, and then March changes everything.  By March, seed catalogs have been set aside as orders have arrived, and gardeners will already have their seed packets lined up ready to go.   March is usually "go time" for many seedling varieties to be planted.  So, as March progresses and the garden continues to hibernate, seedlings are growing like crazy in the protected greenhouse.   If you truly want to steal a couple of months to add to your gardening year.....now is the time to give us a call at 479.849.4385,


Why a Yoderbilt Greenhouse?

Monday, February 24, 2020

Many of you know our story, but some of you may not.  Our life is pretty simple as it is all about our deep love of family, a slower pace, farming, gardening, and the outdoors.  On the business side, some days we still look at each other in disbelief that Yoderbilt is what it is today.  It has been an incredible experience sharing this love of greenhouses and gardening with so many, and we hope it is a fantastic thing for our customers as well.  It's definitely not what we set out to do when Travis built that very first greenhouse for me.


A little back story, Travis and I got married in 2006 here in Arkansas, surrounded by family and friends, and moved to Colorado the NEXT day for a job opportunity he had. We loved everything Colorado had to offer so incredibly much.  But we soon had Olivia on the way, and we were far away from both of our families.  He had a wonderful job, but it lent to a lot of travel.  Once Olivia made her debut, and we made our first trip back home, we realized we wanted to "be" back home.  Amazingly, the farm RIGHT NEXT door to my parents was for sale.  We knew it was the answer for us. 




Travis still had a lot of travel and did not like being away from us. So we purchased a fifth wheel and traveled with him.  IT was an incredible experience. During this period, we were settling into farm life, a simple life that we both loved so much with a little one running around.  He had always wanted cattle.  We got cattle.  I had always wanted a garden and a greenhouse, we had the garden, but the greenhouse was a bit more challenging.  Our only options were ordering online at prices that were quite high and still have to assemble it ourselves; most of the reviews on quality made us shy away.  We visited our local big box stores in person and online, and it was pretty much the same.  We had friends and family who had purchased some of the same, and they were flimsy and wouldn't often make it through one single season.  So, Travis decided he would build us one under the shade tree in our front yard.  That is a story all in and of itself that I'll come back on and share someday.


A greenhouse business was nothing we ever set out to do; I just wanted a pretty and well-made greenhouse.    But, as friends and family began to see them and want them, you know what they say about word-of-mouth being the very best marketing tool out there, let's just say, the rest is history.



We KNOW what we've poured into these greenhouses to make them the very best on the market.  And, our customers time and time again, sing that same sentiment.   But why should new customers choose Yoderbilt as their greenhouse provider?  Let me share what we've heard and in the actual words of some of our customers.



Yoderbilt is known for a well-made quality product made of the very best craftsmanship.   Every single greenhouse is assembled in our manufacturing plant with an inspection before delivery and after.   We received a call last week with someone wanting to buy one of ours because he had purchased another one elsewhere, and it had fallen apart. Trust me; we, unfortunately, hear that so often.   Here are more words we'd like to share from our customers.

"Hello. My name is Mechelle Tournear, and I live in Midwest City, Oklahoma. I got my greenhouse in September 2017. It’s an 8x16. I love how well it holds up to the Oklahoma wind and heat. I recommend it to everyone that asks what kind I have."

"I am Debra Whaley, and we live in NE, Arkansas, Piggott, close to the Missouri state line. I have one of the greenhouses brought to me by Travis when he first started his business! I love it so much and have made several referrals to people that ask. We live right on Highway 62, and lots of people comment on my greenhouse, I keep it lit up in white lights year round!! It is full as I winter all my ferns here that I use in my yard in the summer!! Can’t wait for nice weather!! And love my Yoderbilt greenhouse!!"

"My name is Gena Alderman, and I live in England, AR, and I have a Yoderbilt greenhouse! I love my greenhouse! The only problem is that I need a bigger one! Mine is 8 x 8."

"Hello, my name is Kim Penrod, and I live in Hinton, Oklahoma. I got my Yoderbilt greenhouse this fall and am in love! I have been looking for about a year, and these are the best, and they withstand our crazy Oklahoma wind! I have an 8X16 Yoder Gray with the electric package, and my only complaint is it's already too small! The perfect place to have coffee or afternoon tea until the weather gets warmer. I absolutely recommend these greenhouses as a wonderful investment for your peace and outdoor enjoyment".

"My name is Pam Stanlick, and I live in Sulphur Oklahoma My only complaint ( to me) that I didn’t buy a larger greenhouse I bought an 8x8 because I couldn’t get a larger one down my alley and into my backyard
I love my Yoderbilt greenhouse and could not recommend Travis and his crew more. They were very courteous and did a super job of delivery and set up and the product is the best I have recommended your greenhouses; as a matter of fact, I did again this morning".

The investment of a greenhouse is an investment on any platform.  However, we only strive to provide greenhouses of the utmost quality but still make them something you thoroughly enjoy spending your time in.   We also work hard to keep our prices low in comparison to what others offer on the market.  Our greenhouses begin at $2195, and this includes free delivery, leveling, and set-up within 250 miles of our manufacturing facility in Mansfield, Arkansas. 

We hope this gives you a little insight into why we do what we do.  And, we are very aware that we wouldn't be on this journey to provide such a quality product without our amazing customers.  In our next segment, we'll go into why people even purchase a greenhouse.  There are so many reasons, so check back in! 









  

How Do I Heat My Yoderbilt Greenhouse

Wednesday, February 5, 2020

Mansfield, AR 72944, USA



Yoderbilt Greenhouses

One of our most frequently asked questions, "How do I heat my greenhouse?" There are many things to consider when answering this question: type of heat source, 4 mm or 8 mm twin wall polycarbonate, size of the greenhouse, and climate zone. We will address each of these issues to inform our customers of how to have a successful experience with their Yoderbilt Greenhouse.

Buy a Greenhouse in Oklahoma

Growing in a Greenhouse

 Systems:

1. The size of your greenhouse will determine the amount of heat needed. For example, an 8x8 or 8x12 will require different heating as opposed to an 8x16 or larger. For an 8x8 or 8x12, we recommend the use of one electric oil-filled radiator heater. For an 8x16 up to a 12x28, we recommend the use of two electric oil filled radiator heaters. Greenhouses larger than a 12x28 may require the use of more than two oil-filled radiator heaters.
2.  We also recommend a second source of heat, such as propane or natural gas, in case of a power outage during below-freezing temperatures. Ventilation and airflow are key to the health of your plants when heating your greenhouse.  We typically  have a fan blowing at all times to keep the air circulating.  This also prevents cold pockets of air from forming.
3.  We also have auto-vents and side windows to pull in fresh air on days above 50 degrees or on sunny days. On sunny days, we typically turn off the heat sources until dusk and then turn them back on going into the evening. Remember that your plants need fresh air and circulating air.   
4,  We offer two plastic coverings for your greenhouse; 4 mm or 8 mm twinwall polycarbonate. We use an 8 mm twinwall polycarbonate on all of our personal Yoderbilt Greenhouses.
5.  Greenhouses located in Northern states will require more heat than those located in Southern states.  There is no magic formula.  Climate zones, temperatures, cloudiness, greenhouse size, and covering material will affect your ability to  heat your greenhouse properly. Keeping all of those factors in mind will help you have a successful experience with your Yoderbilt Greenhouse.

**Disclaimer - I had a new greenhouse put into place over the last week and am in the middle of moving and separating my plants.  Once I get those moved and things settled, I will add pictures of my current heating set-up as these pictures were taken this past summer.
