    Vegetables.

    I have a tunnel house. I want to grow vegetables in it. I pulled all the weeds out of it. What can I plant around about now and not have it die? (Westland climate)

    Depending on how big your tunnel house is I would be planting things that like heat and humidity in there like tomatos chillies capsicums lettuces some early spuds maybe if your a new spud fan.
    And plant things that need room outside in a garden if the tunnel house is small like spuds,pumpkins,yams,silverbeat,colli,brocolli etc etc.
    Spuds and yams do not like frost at all but if you leave it till about a month before you expect the last frost you can just mound up(rebury the tops) if a few days of frost are looming.

    I like vegies they put me further up the food chain.... Those planter planners are good some have plannings for green houses also you can start stuff in them then harden it off outside for a head start / early stuff....

    And finally "Growing plants in a greenhouse on the Coast" Just ask your neighbours which strain does the best
