How To Make And Use
Solar Pyramids

Dateline: 5 April 2017

My recent post titled Solar Pyramids In The Minibeds generated an astonishing number of views. It must have been mentioned by a popular internet web site. Thank you, whoever you are.

That kind of interest got me to thinking that I should create an inexpensive PDF report all about the solar pyramids. If someone doesn't want to part with the money to buy a copy of my Planet Whizbang Idea Book For Gardeners in order to learn all about this amazing gardening appliance, they can just buy the report.

So that's what I've done. The 11-page report has an introductory page, a couple preliminary pages from the book, and then the 6-page solar pyramid chapter. I tell how I came to invent the solar pyramid and how you can make and use your own solar pyramids. Then, the last two pages of the report have several color pictures of the solar pyramid.

I have been using solar pyramids in my garden for the last six years. They are well suited for germinating seeds and jumpstarting transplants. I think they can also be utilized for season extension too, but I have not tried that yet.

Cost of the PDF report is $2.50. You can order with the "Buy Now" button below. After you have completed the payment, a download link will be sent you you by e-mail.

    As yet cannot afford the solar pyramid materials, so am trying an idea I read about: covered my new plantings (there are but a few) with gallon water/milk plastic jugs whose bottoms are cut out, placed over the plant and the lid is off to allow rain or watering. But as yet, California's gotten twice the normal rainfall, so our soil is soaking. Course, the plastic jugs won't allow much growth; the solar pyramids are a MUCH better choice and function.
