bagging gas. hilarious. hope you do not take this wrong.
lol I knew a true car worker guy would know what that meant.

with that you could cover it with plastic making a small greenhouse of sorts and you could keep your plants outside all year long, even in Canada. probably would fruit a lot faster.

of coarse a large in ground coy pond would work much better than a kids swimming pool.
I brought the plant in (white bucket) so I would not have to build a greenhouse with hot water circulating kid swimming pooling so it would fruit faster even in Canada.

The plant is under temporary light.

glad were ok. I hope.

built a garage in the mid 70s. 28 by 24 ft. Williston north Dakota. 45 miles from the Canadian border. floor heat. 40,000 btu, 40 gallon hot water heater. wish I had a picture green grass year round around the garage. cheaper to heat the garage than the house both had a cement slab. funny seeing green grass against a 3 ft high snow drift. working under a car it was sooo warm it would put me to sleep.

there are people here, who maybe have most of the materials and the inclination to attempt such a project. I am in florida and there is no need for this here. just throwing something out.
