Recycled materials rule. Free or really cheap. Hit the scrap bin at any local construction sites. Got a habitat for humanity pre used building materials place.
Pulled patio doors are nice glass when striped of most of the frame. Same with big windows. Call the local glass shops ask about bargains. Big chunks of OSB can be laminated into a double thickness with offset seams with glue and screws. Paint with several coats of exterior paint for recycle store. Line box with 1" foam board.

The one in article needs to be about a foot taller. The angle on the glass should be the same as your latitude.

The nicest one for leaf lettuce my dad had was the windshield from a Piper J-3 Cub, sat against the board back fence. Pick it up, pick the lettuce, put it back.
