The experiment with the incandescent lights didn’t work very well. At best they kept the air temperature about 5 degrees above the outside temp which was in the low 30’s. So tenting over the heated beds is going to be the answer. he lights will be switched back to the CFL’s to reduce costs.
AND after some serious reading about growing tomatoes in the winter, i found out it only works here from October to January. NOT January and February (does that fall under the ‘day late and a dollar short’ philosophy????). But there is great hope for some lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower and maybe some early peas. The tomatoes will have to wait till march to get started, but next fall i hope they will be in the greenhouse till New Years.
Tomorrow i’m getting more of the brooder lights lights (at $7 a piece they are a real steal. Don’t get any ideas Possum!!!!!). According to the Farmers Almanac Monday will be a good day to plant above ground plants.
Sorry, No pictures today. I meant to take a picture of the green house lit up last night. Next week i will.
