Growing Tomatoes in the Pacific Northwest can be a challenge, so I made this greenhouse to protect my plants from the rainy weather. Using a few simple materials from the hardware store this simple structure was done in about an hour.

    Great idea! Usually thinking of a way to bring about your idea, is really time consuming. Thank you, for doing the hard work! So easy, wish I had thought of it! Definitely will try it!

    This looks like something that will work well for me. The weather has been so crazy here. It's as if we have winter one week and summer the next week or even every couple of days.
