    Default Hothouse / Greenhouse

    I built this to keep my tomatoes warm. It's made with poles from an old damaged tent and covered with this winters window insulation films. If I can keep an eye on the ventilation hopefully it'll work out. This photo compressor is the pits I'm dumping it. lol

    Excellant way to recycle, are you using pressure treated lumber for your reaised bed? I ask because of the chemicals that are used in the lumber making proccess have been tested pretty extensivley and will leach the chemicals into the soil and your vegtables all the way to your plate.


    Some of the stuff they pump into the redwood treated lumber

    Chromated Copper Arsenate, Alkaline Copper Quat, Micronized Copper Quat, Copper Azole, Sodium Borates, Copper Naphthenate and Pentachlorphenol

    All some really nasty stuff.

    Great 'eco-green' idea, btw!
