    My Susan has the same one in green.

    We had tomatoes well into the winter.

    Heated with a 3000w 220v fan forced heater in winter.

    Temp controlled in warmer weather by thermally actuated roof panel.

    She grows all sorts of vegetables, flowers and whatnot.
    Susan has certificates from the NY Botanical Gardens in a few different areas.
    Damn tomato plants have stems almost an inch thick.

    I am the only Italian that cannot grow stuff. So, the canning, plumbing and other non-dirty (I know it is called soil!) stuff is my job.
    On the list of things to do are; Rainwater management system, Drip irrigation expansion, etc.
    Suzy likes it, and that is all that matters.

    Good job Smitty. I just finished about $100 of work so my better half can grow $20 of tomatoes. Keeps her happy so she then lets me go ride...after I weed that is.

    My poly tunnel is my sanctuary – Lemons, Cherries, Blackberries, Spring Onions, Raspberries, Tomatoes – heck, if I could get the TW in there I would ….

    Same deal though - $100 bucks spent for every $20 worth of produce – lol

    But as I tell “her indoors” – “you think this stuff grows itself ? “

    The subterfuge has worked well so far – (but I suspect she’s humouring me ) …..
