The Q&A Archives: Hot house / Green house and other items

Question: Our family does quite a bit of gardening in our small back yard. We do so in square foot boxes.

As a learning experience, I am as I write having my son build a hot house/green house. We built a wood frame and are using 8 mil plastic for walls. The hinged top is waffle clear plastic. Please share with us how we might best utilize our new unit without having plants burn up. In particular, we wanted to start cold crops for a fall planting. Should that be done in the hot house our directly into the ground. Any other suggestions you have for success in the use of this hot/green house is appreciated.
