Default My New Greenhouse (On a budget!)

Well my plants have been getting sun but only when the protected backyard has been above 50 and the winds were not a factor. I did buy a 19.99 greenhouse, but before I assemble it I have to make sure its secure and wont tip over from the wind. In the meantime I said is there anything else I can do to that will let my plants catch some rays outdoors? Then it hit me, when I was at my local big box store I saw some clear smaller storage containers on sale for under 4.00 that's when the light went off! Here was a mini greenhouse, that will keep on the cold & keep out the wind til these seedlings get bigger. so yesterday in 34 degree sunny weather the seedlings spent 1-1/2 in the sun. Where there's a will there's a way.

Neat idea. Do you happen to know what the temp was inside your 'greenhouse'?

Asuaump, As they were in just over an hour I don't but I will be putting a outdoor thermometer in next time to make sure I don't fry the seedlings. If it gets over 9o or so I'll prop the thing up so a little outside air can regulate it.
