Made this last year. Sun Tuff GH sheeting for the sides.
Got some ripe tomatoes outside.
Trying different toms, best for here outside, for me, has been the 4th July.
Filled with a mix of HM compost, garden compost & moldy leaves (1/2 done compost).
Achieved 6 to 8 ° warmer soil in the daytime. Was not a sunny summer so I'm hoping
for better results this year. Will try a 4th July & an Early Girl & stake up to keep
the sides of the box exposed to the sun better.

I love your experiments, Dave!

Hope it keeps your soil nice and warm and here's to lots of ripe tomatoes!
