    My little greenhouse

    Finally got this put up to use as a cold frame for my Drosophyllum and sarr seedlings in winter. My first greenhouse, 4W x 6.25L x 6.25H. Just need to finish the outside and get it staked down. I know it is not much compared to the awesome setups I see on here, but the best I can do at this time for what I need it for (got to start somewhere, eh?). I don't know if I can grow anything in there in summer as it is like over 100 degrees in there right now, 80s outside, and finances prevent modifications at this time. It is set up on the south side of the house with full sun exposure when it does decide to shine here in winter. I have a little heater I can run in there this winter if need be to see if I can keep the temps above freezing somewhere in the 40s range.

    It has two small windows, one on each side. I need to figure a way to close those off better for winter as they only have a little velcro at the bottom to cover, but does not seal enough and lets in too much air. Will be an interesting trial and error for me this being my first attempt.

    Excellent! Any addition to your grow space is a good thing. Even the smallest of greenhouses comes in mighty useful!
