Well this seemed like a good idea...
Momma and I aren't getting any younger and working with cold frames last year I really got the bug to put up a small greenhouse so as to not have to be squatting down with the frames. Well the kids came over and we had a fun afternnon setting her all up last fall, I threw some pots and such in it for over the winter and have been thrilled everytime I look at at that nice little greenhouse thinking about spring. Well spring is here ???
Anyway I started setting things up and put a nice big thermometer in there that I can read from the house. Yesterday it was 50 F and sunny outside-- the thermometer was pegged at 120 F in my little green house!!
I never even thought about it getting TOO HOT !!
Today was 35F mostly grey with wind chill around 15F and it still read 85 in there this afternoon. Suns been down a while, 22 F outside 34 F inside right now.
Anybody else have any experiance with a small unit. ( 6 X 8) and about 7ft high in the center, gable roof, all sides are roughfly 1/4 inch thick plastic panels that are formed kinda like cardboard wth the roughles between two flat sheets can't quite see thru them sorta lika a shower door look.
I'm befuddled, I've been thinking about heating it somehow and it looks like cooling maybe a bigger issue...
