Jeez, sound nice. I'm curious when you roll up your sides do you find you get aphids sooner or heavier? Maybe it's just my geography. I have to vent through the upper ends of my greenhouse.
Pests that crawl love open sides. With Planet Natural shutting down. I don't have a good supply of natural beneficial bugs anymore.

I never had a problem with bugs. The big problem here is moth larvae caterpillars that get inside the stock and bore down to the base, killing the plant. Under the roll ups I've got some fine screen for protection. Maybe that's the difference. I use Diatomaceous Earth on the ground too.

Holy crap. Moth larvae? They do that? Are these like super moths? Or just regular ol moths?

Cats.
Big problem in the Northeast. They burrow down to the main stalk and it's all over.

zeez, I like the screen idea. You have some large beautiful plants in your greenhouse. What size bags are you using?
I have 35 and 45 gallon bags in mine. I have a total of 19 bags inside. My spacing looks similar , but I think I'm being greedy. 15 bags might have much better light penetration. I test so many strains each year that I can justify the crowding.

Peace brother farmerlion

Those are home depot 27 gal storage bins and last year's grow. It works for the size of the greenhouse. Any bigger and the plants would out grow the house. With good soil it was enough that I didn't have to do allot of feeding. The GH is 12 x 18. Pretty good size for a 12 plant legal grow.

I can monitor and control it from anywhere with a cellphone just the same. The iPad is easy when working in there. This setup will cover cooling, security, motion detectors, fans, roll up sides, ridge vent, watering, feeding, ... the whole enchilada.

Zeez, that has all the makings for a real slick setup. I hope the wind here in MA today doesn't mess with your frame.

Wait ,what? Are they shutting down for good, or just temporarily due to the crisis? I don't see anything on their site.
