It is finally greening up here. Not much veggie action is going on yet but lots of flowers. The big garden is all planted, now just to work in my smaller ones. The tomatoes and peppers are still in the poly-tunnel because it just isn’t that warm out. The are loving it in the 80 to 90 degree temps of the tunnel. A polytummel is a great way to get a head start on gardening, especially for those who live in cold climates. Its really easy to make and not all that expensive either. You will need some irrigation pipe or anything else that is flexible, 8 five foot yard type fence posts, and 6 or 12 mil plastic.
How To Grow Food in your Polytunnel all Year Round, which as been a great help in our quest for fresh veggies in the middle of the winter.
We recently decide that we are going to add doors on both ends and a wooden base to the bottom of the irrigation pipe. This will help make in sturdier, allow us to use less plastic, and hold up better to our Minnesota winters.
