How to Build a Simple Cold Frame Hoop House
Gardening Videos from - Backyard Gardener

As I am sure most of you know the "higher math" the cold frame builder used was wrong. He said C= pi x R squared. It was an accident of the radius dimension "2" that he arrived at his approx. correct answer. Use his equation, with a radius of 5 and see what happens.

Correct equations
Circle Circum = 2 x Radius x pi(3.14).
Area of circle = pi x R squared.
For example ...If R=5', C= 2 x 5 x 3.14 = 31.40 '
A= 5 sq'd x pi = 78.50'
... Nuther way to say it is, as a good ol' boy from Texas once says to me, "Corn Bread are Square, Pie are Round."

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.starwalker pen
