We should "force" Pow wow to perform . . . come on John! Let's see those pictures!!

Okay, here's an album link: [url=https://s899.photobucket.com/albums/ac192/JohnCm_bucket/?start=all]JohnCm_bucket's album[/url] Very lovely dahlias, other flowers and some nice ripe tomatoes in a summer backyard. The greenhouse is in 1 picture :wink: .

Here's the story on my greenhouse (actually a "sunshed" since it has an insulated roof & north wall): Wind continued, it is 32°F outdoors right now and the greenhouse is 37°. It does not retain much heat with a polyethylene film south wall.

When I 1st built a backyard greenhouse - it was a lean-to against my garage, then - I tried to keep it heated thru the winter with a large, electric bathroom heater :roll: . The door froze shut! I couldn't do more than look at things thru the window; including a happily running electric heater eating into my bank account!

Thanks Steve, I'm absolutely clueless unless someone sits beside me and walks me through it.lol I will get my sister to do that next time she's over.
Yes, I recall at -25 celsius, just peeking from the outside to make sure the plants survived another night.

Thank you rainbowgardener and Eric.
That was an experiment. My deck had rotted out so I needed something there last summer. Now I will just hang out in front of the GH until I get around to putting something permanent in that spot. Could be years.lol
