Default Slide show of the GH build

I was given the info on this site from a friend and have been skimming over it a little at a time trying to learn and improve the little knowledge that I have on growing maters. I have tried many times and failed often so as I have time I enjoy reading what's going on in the world of maters. I had been wanting to put together a GH using a couple old carport frames that I had picked up for almost nothing. Here is a short slide show of the almost finished construction. Any comments or ideas would be greatly appreciated

Jeez nothing like starting small! You're gonna have so many tomatoes you might have to start your own tomato-throwing festival.

The only structural comment I have is to wonder how well the arches are tied together.

Lol as for starting small I was going to only build half of it out this year. And go from there. But after my pops came with me to visit Rajun's GH he was hooked and ready to put the whole thing up. So that's how the whole thing went wrong. I blame it all on Rajun!

As of now I just have 2 runs of top rail screwed to them. I am planning on adding 2 more runs for the side rows. I will go from there. We had winds around 40 mph gusts and it was barely moving. So gonna see from there. If something bad comes Thru I have no issues cutting the plastic. It's easily replaceable.

Don't blame me, you said it was Pops so that means it's in your genes too.

This year will be a learning project but even if you fail there's enough plants to give a good harvest. Ain't no crawfishing now, it's too late.

Here's another quick update on the GH. The wife took the pics so they could have been better, but we will just make the best of it!

The growth is amazing for just 1 week! Well at least it is to me.

I like the high side walls of the GH. Nice layout.
