My hubby bought me a little walk in greenhouse from tractor supply last year.  It is simply a metal frame with a vinyl cover, the door has zippers on both sides.  There are two rows of metal shelves 8 in total that hold a plastic flat well. This is the second season I have used it to start my garden plants.  I put a heat lamp in it if i need warmth and open the door in the morning on my way to the chicken house so it doesn’t cook my plants during the day.  The thing works good and was not very expensive.  The best part is that I can disassemble it and store it overhead in the chicken house when I am done with it.  It is not as nice as a real greenhouse, but it is better than nothing.
