RE: Greenhouse problems

Right now we are using an electric heater that looks like a radiator. In the
past - and in the future - once my greenhouse is expanded a bit more - we
will use wood. If it is a large greenhouse, wood is the way to go. I have
also used a salamander on a temperature gauge (from the hardware store) but
you have to be careful what plants you grow if you use kerosene as the fumes
will kill some plants.

My greenhouse is around ten foot tall and I think 15 foot by 15 foot covered
with 6mil plastic and some windows. We did not get it finished as fall
arrived too fast. Next year we plan to begin to replace the plastic with
corrugated hard plastic. I am also hoping he gets a second layer of plastic
on that will go the opposite way of the one we have on. I have a ceiling fan
installed as well to circulate the heat and force it down. So far, with
heat, we are holding 50 degrees F.
