    What is the red mulch area growing?

    Beautiful! Transplanted onions, parsley, dill, peas and leeks into the garden, hoping they’ll provide enough alliums for the year. Last year my onions sat and refused to grow. Hoping to save some seed from the overwintered kale; still enjoying overwintered leeks, and the sorrel is going strong. New mustard green sprouts looking good, at least if today didn’t fry them while I was at work. Have learned my cabbage seedlings kept dying because I was keeping them in the greenhouse; will be replanting, third time! Live and learn, I guess. Got enough chard from the greenhouse bed to make a calzone; great excitement. Nice bit of spinach, and some gorgeous lettuce, too. Salad for supper!!

      NM, I know I’m quickly heading to the spot where I have too many starts and no place to put them. Eats lots of bok choy and quiche though, no shortage of eggs and greens! Eggs and greens are fast food!

    That’s beautiful. I can’t help but smiling when I see gardens coming together like that.

    Really cool. Hope my wife doesn’t see this, then I’ll just have another project to do. Just kidding, I’ll do it if she asks, maybe for Mother’s Day or something like that.

    I was curious as to how you like the red plastic/mulch? Does it help the toms?

      Bunkie, it seems to work about the same as the green. I tried both last year and the results were the same. Our nights are so cool in the summer any type of mulch helps even in the hoophouse. Plus it sure cuts down on the weeding 🙂

    I’ve searched your site for info on your greenhouse to no avail. Any recommendation?
