Does anyone have experience with hoop houses/ high tunnels?
#1
So I recently sold my 10x12 greenhouse because I out grew it. My plan is to build a 15x30 or 15x40 hoop house and heat it with a small wood stove I picked up.

My plan is to run the wood stove chimney horizontally about 6-10ft the out and up. over the horizontal section of chimney I plan on building a seedling bed which the chimney will heat in place of an electric heat mat. If this idea doesnt work out I may build some type of water tank that rest on the stove and circulates water/coolant through pex pipe and heat the soil that way.

With any luck I'll have tomatoes in June.

Do you want to buy a 4'x8' solar water heating panel cheap? All you gotta do is run out there and get it out of my garage.

Did you get anything built with that panel you picked up from me? I'm curious to know if it worked out for you or not.

Nope, we made a deal for it in PM and he came and picked it up, I was just wondering how he made out with it. I had another one, but I traded it for a guy to put up my shower liner when I remodeled the bathroom.

Oh, I just gave myself a face palm after reading your next post.

Did you make them yourself or buy them?

Funny you should ask! I was just about to update this thread with pics.

I just installed the wood stove today. I havent done anything with the panel yet. My 1st attempt at building the greenhouse back in Dec was trashed due to a wind storm while the plastic wasnt properly secured. I just made the repairs and put new plastic on this past week.

It's 17x30

Can you please start a thread about tips/tricks for greenhouse growing? If you outgrew one, I'm guessing you have some experiences/insight to share.
