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!

  1. 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….

  2. 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!

  3. 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

  4. 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. 🙂
