Making an Early Girl Earlier - Hopefully


Living at the ranch things don't have to look like uppity up town society. So, with that in mind I can build a butt ugly 16x20 inch green house for my Early Girl tomato plant in about 10 minutes using a re-purposed lamp shade frame and last season plastic. If all goes well I can possibly have an Early Girl BLT sandwich earlier.

Heck Senior...... I initially thought you were dispensing marital advice.

Not at the moment, but if the price is right I suspect I could make up something.

Is it going in the ground eventually ? If not, bring it close to electricity and set it on a $10-15 heating pad, made just for gardeners. And take the lampshade off during the day.

Yes, it will go into the ground when the outdoor ambient temperatures indicate it will be safe from frost. The mini greenhouse will hopefully make that a little earlier for Early Girl.

Re: Making an Early Girl Earlier - Hopefully


Soil temp is important....air temp not so much. If you are going to wait over two weeks..why not try a heating mat ?
