LaVern has been busy constructing his greenhouse. When he is finished it will have plastic over it and then straw bales along the outside. Inside will be another covering over the plants and 55 gallon barrels in each corner. He is painting the barrels black and will fill them with water to help heat the greenhouse. Then in the cold, cold weather he may hook up the little wood stove directly to the barrels and heat the water that way. Trial and error is what he said! Those are green beans inside it now. Still producing and I'm canning.
Are you enjoying the moon? Tomorrow night is a full moon................go for a night walk!!!!!

Hey try filling the barrels with large river rocks. These will maintain the heat even after the fire goes out.
