So, I found some extra lumber, cut it down to two foot lengths and made some easy 2x2 boxes. I found another use for those plastic blind slats, they make great dividers. I planted eight kinds of lettuce, four kinds of radishes, and two kinds of carrots.
“How to Grow Food in your Polytunnel all Year Round” is awesome. We are really excited to be able to have fresh veggies in the near middle of winter. We figure that the cost of the tunnel will pay itself back if the only thing we grow is lettuce the first winter. Right now we spend about four dollars a week on lettuce and that is just for my husband's dinners at work.
Right now we are using the space as a place to till soil for the planter boxes and new garden beds.
|All of the seedling enjoying some shady sunshine. Hopefully they can go in the ground soon under the cover of some hoop row covers at night.|
