Char,  I have a little electric heater I turn on at sundown.  I throw some old blankets over the outside, then a tarp over the blankets so the heat doesn't fly out.  I remove the blankets and tarp at sunrise and turn the heat off.  The sun heats it up to about 80 durning the day.  If it gets to hot I open up the ends.  Nothing fancy but effective.  I get a two month jump on the germination.

I think were all anxious for bloom season to arrive.  Still three months away here in Colorado but I do have some seeds germinating.  First photo is how the seeding area looked the end of January.  I covered the "A" frame the 5th of February and two weeks later I have a few seedling poking their leaves through.  I keep a little heat (very little) inside at night to keep from refreezing - 38 to 40 at night.
