Hoop House Closer to Completion

The hoop house is almost ready for the plastic! If we do not get the plastic on tomorrow then we should be able to get it covered Wednesday, weather permitting of coarse. A really windy day is not the best day to cover a hoop house.

Lettuce planting time is almost here! As soon as we finish the hoop house and get a couple more fence sections in the ground, I will be planting the lettuce. As soon as the hoop house is done I will be filling it with mustard greens, swiss chard, beets, spinach, and some other types of greens. The things that are going in the hoop should have actually be planted already, but have not be able to plant them since the hoop is not finished. I will be so relieved and excited to finally get things in the ground. I am also going to be planting some onion sets, for scallions, once the hoop is done. I have to plant them next to the hoop and have not been able to do so because they would get trampled while we were working.

So as you can see everything getting planted is all dependent on the hoop house getting finished, which luckily it is finally very close to being completed.


I am happy to say that our garlic is looking good. I was worried about it for awhile since the area that we planted it in actually had sitting water for a while when they were just beginning to come up this spring. But so far they seem to be looking good and growing on schedule. I am so relieved, that would be a lot of wasted garlic, but they appear to be fine.
