Again, seeing how effective the clear plastic is at keeping the ground warm. Ground temp measured 65 this evening 5-6" down, even with one end of the hut open. No heating cables, in the midst of a horrible spring cold front! The plastic on the ground IS the way to go. My other double plastic tent gets quite hot during the day, but the ground temp there is 10 degrees cooler. I'm sure if I put plastc on the ground there, the temps would go up there as well.

The tomatoes will need to be transplanted out soon. This could make a huge difference, it will help avoid a total disaster anyhow.
