Prepare for some all-season gardening! Growing crops on your soil is fun and challenging. If you’re playing with seasonal growth and snow enabled, your farm will not produce crops during winter, though. What to do… what to do…?
Let’s build some greenhouses! Regardless of the season and weather conditions, you generate additional income, even during snowy months. Grab your coat, and grow some vegetables! So, let’s not beet around the bush here, and lettuce take a look.
Small, medium or large?
By magnifying the light of the sun and protecting the plants from freezing temperatures, your greenhouses can be an essential asset to your bank account – and your soul: Just image the sight of invigorating green lettuce after shoveling snow between dead trees and withered crops, just to uncover asphalt. Never been so happy to see some lettuce in front of you, have you?
Found in the production tab of the building screen, there are multiple greenhouses if different sizes to choose from: small, medium, and large. You can place them on a free area on land that is in your possession. If you ever dreamed about a gigantic strawberry farm, this is your chance!
Plant lettuce, tomatoes, and strawberries!
Not much of a lettuce person? Then, just… toss it. You can grow tomatoes and strawberries, too. By visiting a greenhouse or directly opening the production chain screen in the menu, you can see all of your greenhouses listed, and manage their productions.
Don’t forget: You need to provide the greenhouses with water. Otherwise, they won’t produce anything.
Store, sell, or distribute your produce!
For each product growing inside your greenhouses, you can manually set the output mode. By default, the greenhouse will “store” the goods by generating pallets full of lettuce, tomatoes, or strawberries. Then, you have to take care of them manually, after.
You can also choose to automatically sell them, or distribute them to a production plant like the bakery for further processing. Let’s make some delicious strawberry cake! Over there, you can again choose what should happen with the goods produced with your ingredients from the greenhouse.

Also, we want to take attention, that with FS22 mods you will be able to grow much more fruit types than the default. Likely will be flowers, much more fruit and vegetable types and herbs. And, of course, we share greenhouse mods themselves. Much more types and sizes of greenhouses.
