I’m calling success

According to Weather Underground (which has a weather station less than a mile from me) we dropped to a low of 5 degrees last night.

Here’s the thermometer that I placed under the covers with the broccoli:



According to that, it recorded a low of 38.1 degrees with in the last 24hrs.

I’ll say that works just fine!

      I’m pretty darn happy with it! The lights worked well enough with my little grenhouse that I knew it ought to work….but that much of a temperature increase is awesome. I may have to look at what I’d have to do to make it a permenant setup for winter growing…..
