I live in Nebraska, so that means the last frost and cold evening may come well after may… That’s why I am going to build this myself this year. It’s very simple to build and with a little begging, stealing and borrowing I think I can get the total cost to pretty much 0… (I don’t condone stealing, I am taking from my father in law who said it was OK, so technically it isn’t stealing lol)
