Building a Tomato House
I’m thinking about building a tomato house and want to know what y’all think. Here’s my plan:
I want to build it out of cedar 2×6’s and I’m thinking that it will be about 6′ long x 5′ tall by 3′ deep. The South facing front will mostly be 1/4″ clear plexiglass – same goes for the top, which will be hinged so I can open it on hot summer days. I’ll probably put some weed barrier down and then fill it (1-foot deep) with a mixture of worm castings and organic compost.
What do you think? I’m hoping that it will house at least 3 plants. Do you think that my soil mix is too rich for tomatoes? Anything I’m missing?
