Setting up our hoop houses for our early spring garden planting.

Recommended Posts

So we are getting ready to sow our cool season crops. Finished putting up our low hoop houses. Soil is perfect. 3 straight beautful days here in a row.

Our small green house (REALLY SMALL) has been having to be ventilated due to heat build up and it's location on the south facing wall of our home. Sproutings are up! So if you are in an area where you gardening is getting ready to kick off, theres lots of work to be done!

sorry i havent posted lately. Been sitting with a friend who has been sick for a few weeks. He is a true patriot and is retired military and his son was blown up in Afghanistan a few weeks before my son. He has been through hell over the last few years.

Any way, we all have planted our cool crops. Broccoli, kale,spinach, lettuce kohlrobi. All are doing ok under our low hoop tunnels. Winds are a problem right now but vigilance helps. We had 3 inches of rain this past two days. So preparing anymore beds has been put on the back burner.

Started our seed plantings as well for our summer crops. All indoors by the south facing windows and are up an inch already.

Now, remember!!!! KNOW where your compost comes from folks. Just finished a good read on mother earth news about how we are concentrating our poisons in our compost bins! A great read. Crappie are biting really ell, got to go!

Jerry...good call on poison in compost. The government drops the ball once again. That stuff has a 1/2 life of approx. 553 days so if you get contaminated it will be years before the effects go away. Looks like we need to stay away from off site sources of compost material or spend time finding out where the source gets their supplies and what they are putting on their land.

On another note did you see the DVD? That should be useful...glad Mother Earth News is offering it.
