A diary of Kelsi and Mike's journey through marriage, parenting, and the discovery of country life.
And now for some questions:What is it you're planting?What is it that's already sprouting? How warm is it inside your greenhouse?I can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon! :-)
Hi Danni!We planted a lot of cool weather crops yesterday: Lettuce, Broccoli, carrots, spinach, chard, bok choy.We also planted a lot of flowers that we plan to sell.The sprouts were broccoli, cabbage and lettuce. We plant our cool weather crops multiple times so we don't have all of them ready to eat at the same time. Usually a week or two apart. The greenhouse temperature ranged yesterday between 40 and 70, the temp drops significantly when the sun is hiding behind a cloud.Still warmer than outside. Today it is about 55 on an overcast dreary kind of day.
Oh what we would give for a greenhouse! Where did you get the "good" plastic? What strength is it????
The plastic is 6mil, rated for 4 years without becoming brittle we bought it here. http://www.greenhousemegastore.com/product/4-year-greenhouse-film/plastic-greenhouse-filmBest deal I found when I was searching!
I am building a "cold" (unheated) greenhouse with recycled old windows and would like to know if it is best to have a raised garden bed or better to have my vegetables grow right in the ground. Anyone know?
