    Winter Heat

    I live in Missouri and am thinking about winter and how to
    heat my green house and fish tank. I am also thinking about
    a cool water fish like trout. With this in mind and ground temp
    a constant 55 degrees would a ground source water loop to
    heat the fish tank work as 55 degrees or less would work with trout.
    Do you think the plants would suffer at this temp? Also looking for
    suggestions on heating the air in the greenhouse. Any thoughts or
    info would be helpful.

    Check the link on solar heating and earth heating.


    You can plant cold tolerant crops like snow peas, cabbage, broccoli, etc.

    I plan to use a waste oil heater.
