I guess the gavitas will take care of the temps during the on period but have you done any calculations on how much it will cost per day to heat the greenhouse during the off period? I bought a couple modine hawtdags and they go through a heck of a lot of fuel. Any concerns about soil temps? Are your lights run off of the grid or a diesel generator?

Anyways, just beautiful man.....btw, I grew that Allen Wrench and I dug it. Looked just like indoor and had a very unique nose. It was the only strain in the garden that threw out some
nanners though so, might want to give it a look through now and again.

Peace bradah

Gavitas still dont get it hot enough to dodge the dew point.
THe heater can use up to 2.87 GPH when running at full capacity which is 400,000BTU.. With a 42 gallon tank and this cold snap, it is drinking a tank+ a day. Multiply that by 1.50 a gallon for off road (red)diesel when you buy 1,000 gallons or more. I have a 2000gallon diesel tank ..it helps....

Thanks for the heads up on the Allen Wrench
(Diesel x Trainwreck). When I used run the diesel back in 08-09 it would always throw nanners around week 5-6, I hate that shit. Damn that makes me a bit uneasy to think that Ive got 6 lights of Allen wrench right in the middle of the GH...heh

Fingers crossed I wont be hunting in the bush, pinching nanners!


Yea its really is the best of both worlds. With the tarp off I get nice winter blue x the gavita, the plants are blowing up.. Soil temps are steady 68-72F. I blast the heat and keep it at 80f+ during lights on. With 70 yards of soil I can turn the heater down to 65 at night and even if I run out of fuel before morning the GH stays a steady 50F. Lots of soil pays off heavy with reduced work load and heating costs.

Thanks for stopping by,

EG

NICE.
I am all about organic soil as well (why mess with a [u]perfect[/] system anyway?)! I am just getting my feet wet in the matters though.
Is just clover fine with weed as a cover crop or a mix of cover crops is necessary?

Thanks. Would running soil heating cords down your rows allow you to let your air temps dip more so you won't have to use as much fuel?

soil temps

I saw two different accounts on IG yesterday who lost plants in greenhouse from cold weather. Some claiming you need radiant floors or in soil heating..So I double checked my soil temps to be sure.. My soil temps are 72-71F 6 inches deep.. and get down to 68 closer to the middle of the bed around a foot deep...

I only use my heater and lights to keep the soil warm, 0 problems keeping the soil warm this way..

THey are starting to settle in and have shaken the transplant heebie jeebies... The cover crop is an ultra thick mat now...






With the cover crop laying low after hand watering you can see the size of the plants a bit better..



Raised the lights and had to throw the planks out...

Trace & Micros

Anyone ever add trace elements to their soil?

Before planting I added manganese, Cobalt,Zinc,Solubor 20%... still need copper though, but Im hesitant to add CuSo4 while I have an active crop due to its inherent detrimental effect on roots. Ill wait til the end of this round before amending... Im paying the price now for amending the aforementioned in slight burning of tips and leaf edges. Appears to be mostly Boron burn but overall not to much to speak of. Im bothered by burnt tips and leaves showing stress..I strive for balance and its a tightrope when adding the finer elements to soil...Overall they will grow out of it and in the long run it will be well worth the OCD jitters I traded for long term plant health..

I Just hope I get at least two lbs of Oats per light and Im good. Throw in a lb of peas and Im crushing it!

Im not mowing the Oats in favor of laying them down as a mat. All in hopes of getting them to mature so that I can cycle them and build OM in the soil....
