Greenhouse film update - crazy winter weather
Yesterday was 10F and snow, today 54F and rain, in the middle (night) freezing rain.
I was very concerned about my new greenhouse film, I was able to cover my greenhouse only this November and we got only 3-4 snowfalls this winter.
This morning I came outside to make some photos of ice and snow on the film - there is solid 1 inch ice cover on the roof.
The temperature inside was even lower than outside, and the plastic were covered with thin ice too.
The roof itself is 24 feet long and about 6 feet on the side. My greenhouse stands on the slope and the walls are 4 feet on front and 6 feet on the back. I can barely reach the top on the back with my broom.
Please comment with your winter greenhouse experience! I am a new gardener and would appreciate any advice!
