This is an update video at about the one year mark from when I first made this structure. So far it has started a tremendous amount of plant starts for us, provide a lot of delicious fresh greens, grew our hot peppers, and is proving itself to be a reliable place to overwinter rosemary.
We are going to experiment with using small cold frames in the high tunnel space to be able to start seeds within a week or two, extending our growing season by many weeks. What a great structure for such low cost!

Awesome set up, I'll do the same
this guy has the typical " good guy" voice, intonations, speech patterns, phraseology, speech pace, and its kind of hella ANNOYING!!!!!!! COLD WEATHER IS NOT GROSS….THATS A RETARDED WAY TO DESCRIBE IT, AND OUR GENERATION IS NOT JUST THE GOODEST CUZ WERE THE NEWEST….AND UR SPOUSE IS PROLY A DUMBASS THAT WHISPER TALKS LIKE YOU DO….
Like the greenhouse….but rosemary,,,,that stuff is nasty
Your videos are super calm, love the garden and your voice. May your garden continue to flourish. 🙂
Anyone try this with weed? Lol
Do you have the compost packed against the cattle panel/plastic or did you put another board (or something) on that side to prevent that? I built this in my garage a couple months ago and am so excited to be getting it ready. Thanks!
You have a very soothing Bob Ross like voice. Keep this up! Thanks!
Check out how BioGreen greenhouse heaters can keep the cold out in winter
You can use Woodglut to build it in the cheapest way.
How did the ground water barrel go? You cut the entire base of it off? Is there a video?
What mil of plastic do u use on greenhouse ..the one in vid looks a little cloudy like mine but does it get enough sunlight inside? I’m always worried it’s not enough sun
How are the cattle panels anchored?
The real question for me is, how does it look now 3 years later?
Your poly tunnel has worked out quite nicely. We have loads over here, they really extend the growing session
The cattle panel is same a concrete mesh?
I got build one. How you keep it warm
looks like crap
wood most free, 4 cow panels $225, 6mm poly tarp $50. shes near a $300 dollar project here.
$150? That makes me think $459 for a 10 × 12 harbor freight greenhouse isn't too out of the questions to have auto windows capable throughout.
Wake up people it's 2020 😀
What size plastic did you buy for this green house?
I once visited a greenhouse in Alberta near Valleyview that had a stack wall vestibule about 16" thick on three sides opening onto the greenhouse that was double-lined with a good 6" buffer and constant positive air being blow in. Doing that integrating the Chinese solar greenhouse principles would be really gonzo. CSG's can maintain a 30 C differential with only thermal mass and insulated blanket at night. Lotsa options. Major compost is golden of course, as your hens keep reminding us. 🙂
I'm surprised no one has mentioned that he was petting that stinging nettle plant! And the sunken bucket for collecting water is a clever idea.
