New greenhouse technology
 
I found this video very interesting. This gentleman is growing citrus in Nebraska:

That's neat, and especially since he heats in winter and cools in summer. I didn't hear how deep his piping is?

When I was young, I used to think about doing stuff like that. Now I'm happy to write a check to the propane co.!

Well, he's 85 so.... at the end of the video he makes a comment about how things are just getting interesting. I hope I'm like that at 85.


I think I heard the piping is 8ft deep but varies in different situations.

That's similar to the system I want to use to make a year round greenhouse.

I heard him say it's 8 ft deep. It would have to be around that deep to go below the frost line and a bit beyond to where the underground temp is around 55 degrees.

If it matters any, his soil is very sandy. Nebraska has a "dry line" dividing the state in half east to west. Ted Turner owns cropland in the sandhills portion, and I read he is buying more on the east side of the state near my area too.
