Great timing for this one.

Thank you!

Awesome! I already clean with baking soda and apple cider vinegar, so I'm eager to see what other methods are available.
Thank you!

Welcome, and thank you for the possibility of winning a sickle. A certain luddite attitude means I love hand tools, and having planted small amounts of barley and oats this spring, I'm very interested.

Wow, these are awesome!

May I ask:  what are you planning to do with all the extra money?

Hi,

Reading through this thread, I'm relieved to see some discussion about the angle of the summer sun and the earthen roof / overhang.

Up here (north of 60), I need a well-insulated greenhouse but I also need to take advantage of all the sunlight I can. The frost-free season is very brief (sometimes only 90 days) and any plant which needs to come to fruit needs to do it in a short window.

I don't have any solutions to propose, but just a keen knowledge that I won't be putting a ton of energy into a greenhouse with that much of an overhang.

Cheers

Hiya

This looks awesome, and very pertinent to me.  Wonderful freebie.

However (and please forgive my low intelligence), I can't figure out how to access it as a bonus freebie and I used up my spare money supporting the kickstarter.

Any suggestions?

Congratulations on the magnificent kickstarter!

If it were still possible to add something, I'd like to see design options / plans based on the latitude of the build.

I have difficulty imagining one choice of sunlight angle will fit every place at all times of the year.

Yeehaw!  

Congratulations!

If you're thinking about stretch goals, I'd love to see some plans without the earthen roof. This far north, putting a roof on it like that would mean my greenhouse is shaded from May to August, because the sun is so far north in the sky.

Well done, you guys!  I am excited to see this project unfold.
