Greenhouse


I took cattle panels and put boards around the bottom, they will bend in a u shape and put 6 ml plastic over it with a small heater, worked perfect. Mine
has the dryer outlet blowing into my greenhouse.

this is my greenhouse, I don't have the space for a bigger one, the wind is too strong in my backyard. I might add another next year to sit beside this one, & repair the cover by hand for the one I had last year(which was very small) both came from big lots. I heat it with a 100 light bulb, next year I'll go to lowes & get a grow bulb to use. I also use christmas lights & a seedling heat matt which is hidden from the sun under some plastic. Oh & during temps in the 20's & below I use blankets during the night to help hold the heat in.

The christmas lights puts out a little bit of heat.., the seedling heat mat a little bit more, & the 100 watt bulb(next year i'll have to get some grow bulbs that produce heat)..with temps not getting down below freezing I'm not using the light bulb, only heating mat & the light bulbs. the gallon jugs of water painted black don't work to heat the greenhouse very well, they do give me plenty of water at hand to water my plants in the greenhouse with though.
