"Hey! I've just put in a pvc and plastic "greenhouse" over two raised beds in which I'm growing tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers, squash and eggplant. It's my first time doing it, so I can only tell you about construction, which…"

First Greens!

We used the first greens of the season in a salad a couple of days ago--spinach, mustard and arugala. These were grown in pots and moved out to the cold frames a few weeks ago. The cold frames have been great so far and I'm planning to move some of the warmer season veggies out there soon. I'm also planning to build a hoop-greenhouse to cover the tomatoes that will go in the raised beds. Does anyone have any experience with this or suggestions?The radishes, snap pes and turnips are growing well…See More

cold frames!

I finally finished building the cold frames (with a little help) and they are up and running. I have had the cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts & peas in there the past 4 or 5 nights and they are doing great. The smaller cold frame (2' x 3' prototype) is insulated with straw but the larger one (4' x 4') is still uninsulated. It has only gotten down to about 29F so they haven't seen much harsh weather yet, but I am loving them.

"I have some extra tomato and pepper seedlings. I'm running out of room for everything so these will be looking for homes probably by this weekend. I just transplanted some of them so I would like to give them some time to make sure all are…"

Manure!

Thanks to everyone who helped haul the manure to my garden on Sunday! It has all been spread across the beds and is now covered with snow.All the seedlings are doing well (Tomatoes, Peppers, Jalapenos, Eggplants, Arugala, Mustard, Spinach, Chard and even some peas!). The tomatoes are starting to get their first real leaves and will soon have to be transferred to larger peat pots. I got a little overzealous with the snap pea start time and now they are outgrowing their pots with nowhere to…See More
