    Hi Brad601, You could put some sort of heating element (candle, sterno can, etc.) into a clay terra cotta pot. The clay will hold and retain the heat. Works pretty good. When I was a kid, we went camping a lot and used this method all the time.

    Find a book called The Solar Greenhouse Book by James C. McCullagh. It tells you how to orient the greenhouse to type of glass to use to how to keep bugs out of the greenhouse. Everything you want to know. It's the best book ever written.

    Read about Eliot Coleman of the Four Season Harvest and get his books. He lives in cold, snowy Maine and has grown vegetables for years in all seasons.
