This is a thread devoted to some of the many wonderful  'cattle panel greenhouse' videos of Sean D's at Edible Acres.  

I've always found his videos interesting, informative and just the right length no matter what the subject....don't forget to subscribe to his youtube channel  and check out edibleacres.org!

Thanks kindly for doing this...  If I can be helpful in providing feedback/answers/details, please let me know... These structures have served us really nicely and I'd love to see more out in the world.

Thank you for sharing so much of what you do.

We have a cattle panel greenhouse we built after seeing your video and are planning a second one.  We considered just doubling the length of the first one but thought it would be more useful as separate greenhouses.  We used metal fence posts as posts driven in the ground and both ends are framed in....just this past week added a self opening vent but haven't been able to test that yet.  We love the simplicity and longevity of the structure...and all of the greens and early starts it produces.

Hi Sean, I've only watched the first one so far but it's great.  How long did it take you to build?

Thanks

I'm glad you are aiming towards a second structure instead of a longer single one.  I think at 4 panels they are quite strong, but much longer and there is a decent chance of collapse in the middle...

It's great to know how well these structures handle snow!
