Tighten things up and add a heater.

Here at 45 degrees north we had light enough to ripen tomatoes to 
Thanksgiving, and at about that time we were using a dollar of fuel for a 
dollar to tomatoes so it was time to shut down.

Use a vented heater so that you dont make fuel glazed fruits, and good luck!
