Small lean-to greenhouse

I've always grown in the back yard here up against the house, it's a 5x16 ft strip, the last couple of years i've had bud rot from Sept. Dew and decided to enclose the area, i'm plan to use the white fiberglass wavy stuff on the front,with the clear poly stuff on top,I read at lowe's it was 5 times stronger than the fiberglass, on the ends I'm gonna just put up lattice panels for ventilation, the front will consist of two 8 ft. panels on hinges that lift up for access, I'll use sticks to prop them open like a car hood. i could also partly prop open for more ventilation if it gets really hot. Yesterday I poured my corner posts,It's a full 4 feet between the house and the posts, plenty of room for a row of Dutch Treat. when my kids were small I built a pond out back and pressed ferns into the cement work to make "fossils". I did the same thing on my posts here lol. It's for good luck, you can keep your 4 leaf clovers!! (I'd use one of them too, if I could find one)

Cool :aok:

I had a lean-to greenhouse very similar to what you are planning in the early 80s (in fact, my home looked a lot like yours--the same color, the same siding, similar shutters, same roof pitch). The greenhouse worked great. We planted tomatoes in front and marijuana in back. They grew so well that we had to bend them over and tie them down (LOL--didn't know then I was doing LST). You are probably going to need some kind of fan. It really can get hot in there with no active ventilation. A fan will also help with humidity issues.

The Mrs. just figured out I'm disregarding the window, when your inside the view will be the inside of the greenhouse, lol, we have 4 bedrooms and only sleep in one and grow in another,keep the venitian blinds down. It's so cool to be able to cut holes in the sheetrock for venting, nail 2x4s to the ceiling, just about anything I want.I had read some threads earlier about landlords, like a guy doesn't have enough on his mind, without having to hide and lie about stuff. Sheetrocks so cheap and easy to replace.

If you staple window screen to the lattice it will block part of the moisture from the dew from getting to your plants.

Slowly coming along , I shielded the growing bed from my posts with old plastic soil bags, you don't want your cement leeching nasties into the root zone.

When I began I talked to Lowes and they said they'd cut the siding for me, I made the roof 5 feet so I could split a 10 ft. polycarbon siding, They didn't have 10 footers, bummed out. Special order they said!! I'll have to keep shopping, visqueen if I have to, its good for a season if its put down right. All i know i gotta make room in the small closet, these cannibus plants need to go outdoors today. I took the doors off and couldn't fit all the plants back in, them girls been growing

I'm having a tough time getting outside this morning, rainy, kinda cold, my old bones are acheing, at least i've got some good Mazar, hmm, can't get used to saying that but it is what I'm smokeing, I put a few girls inside the green-to last night, I just needed the room so bad in my veg room. It's not nearly finished but they have a roof over there heads. Man I haven't puffed a cig in 11 years on the 1st of May, still want one once in awhile, about once a month i get a real craving, puff a little Mazar instead!! I can't wait for the dutch treat And C99 to finish off, the C99 is comeing on strong, really catching up to the DT in Bud size,the're a week behind on the 12x12 timetable.I just wanna smoke something different, some good CJ or anything lol. This is the first time I've actualy grown anything other than MazarxPurple erkle cross, in 3 years!! I'm hopeing to make my BLZ my next staple. The Mrs. made candy suckers last night,I'm calling them Rippers, potent little suckers. She used Cherry jello, man they are great!!

Thanks HG, Thanks for the tip on the hermies, when I said 11 for 13 on the BLZ, well actually two I suspected of being hermie even though they showed female, I put them in there own little greenhouse outside,l so I guess its 9 outta 13 were females, I'll watch the 9 closely, so far I'm just loving them, I know i ticked them off when I repotted them at about two weeks triggered, oh well, They all cloned real easy too. I need to harvest!! We did a dispensary thing today, Super lemon Haze, train Wreck, chem dog, purple kush, OG blue, the Mrs liked OG. they gave us a Canna Cone for being first time patients. a rolled cone shaped gram of chem dog!! Even was shrink-wrapped lol, Having so much fun,

started putting a few girls out in the green-to, its not finished yet but i need the room, My veg closet my size only really has room for a couple of plants if you've increased your pot size with there vegetive growth rate, it got to be a jungle, holy moly a friend just brought me 3 big clones and a nugget from the're Mom, he didn't know what strain but I recognized it instantly, heavy duty stinky chem-dog, how much luckier can i get, little forbid and a week in isolation, i relly like this smoke, and for me that is the essence of growin, grow what you like.
