Just an experiment to see if I can grow tomatoes, in this case Tiny Tim, indoors in the smallest area possible.
It’s a simple frame made out of 1/2 inch PVC pipe and fittings from Home Depot, 14" deep by 18" wide by 32" high, covered with “Panda Film” (6 mil opaque plastic, white on one side and black on the other) that I bought from Amazon.
It just fits on top of a two-drawer metal file cabinet.
The light is a 100 watt equivalent (27 watt actual) CFL in a clamp-on reflector housing, both from Home Depot.
Edit July 16, 2011: I added a second CFL.
