      wash GH inside & out.

      Was sunny for a while to day so I washed the GH.
      Dish soap/water & soft brush, rinsed. Got foggy inside & lots of condensation but looks good.
      Definitely needed it. More sun can get in now.
      The sun tuff is pretty tough stuff, hasn't yellowed yet. (9 yrs)

          Past 2 night the Aurora helped them grow some, Monday they were spectacular, green with red edges, shooting all directions. Last night green wavy ribbons.
          Still doing good, had to make the cover taller, couple plants grew taller. Sweet 100 fastest grower, Heirloom : brandywine cowlicks slowest. Hoping for warmer nights soon.
          Anyone want more pictures?

            Always, we always want more pictures.
            It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

              you can't post too many pictures of your GH and Garden (IMHO)... I've thought about building a GH for several years, but your photos have definitely given me motivation to actually build one this year...

                    GH still doing well. 1 EG growing like mad & forming blooms. 1 had turned/curled leaves so I put in one of my spares. (I think a soil fertilizer "hot spot" was the probelm so I too out 5 gallons of GH soil & put in straight garden compost for the new plant)
                    Cucs in the rear box sprouted & growing. several 6 packs : lettuce, & cole crops sprouting on back shelf) Hope to get above freezing nights soon, some toms are out growing the night cover extension I made.
                    Left side gets better morning sun, I think that's why the toms there are growing faster.

                        Still growing. Too big to cover all the way so hoping it stays in mid 30s or more at night Can just see cucs in back soil box.
                        Will try to post progress every week or so.

                          I thank you for taking the time to post!
                          I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.
