years ago I remember seeing a garden show that featured a greenhouse. I'm sure it was at Monticello but my memory isn't perfect. The greenhouse was earth bermed or sunken and had a wood stove built into the back with apparent seed starting area on it. the stove was masonry that went the length of the back wall. I would like to know if that was indeed at Monticello or my memory is faulty also if anyone knows which show that was. I would love to get another look at that greenhouse so if anyone has a link to pictures or video please let me know. I have searched a lot of photos and am beginning to doubt my memory as I haven't seen anything about it at Monticello.
