Howdy folks! I am glad to be back. The hoop house is in production for late fall and winter gardening.
Cabbage, Collards, Broccoli, Kale, Leeks, Lettuce, Oriental Greens, Radishes and Beets have been started and are on the grow. Higher than average temperatures are making the plants grow faster than I expected. Every season is an adventure.
Under the row cover, the environment is like an incubator. Germination is slow but sure. Tasty veggies will soon be on the menu!
Leeks for late winter/early spring harvest. Yum!!
Soon, Sweet peas will be grown on trellises on the northern most bed in the hoop house. Hopefully we will have flowers in late winter/early spring.
Using Christmas lights will supplement the heat needed to speed up production in the hoop house. The lights will be strung from the low tunnel hoops just above the soil and ground cover.
Stay tuned for continued updates.
