We had a good turnout at the planting party. Made some good progress on the first hoophouse - after some serious deliberations over the directions. Then on Tuesday we put on the plastic. It is a nice looking hoophouse. I then planted 23 tomato plants in it this past weekend - there is still some room for peppers.
We also cleaned up the raised beds, filled in holes with new sunflowers, leeks, carrots, and additional herbs. A drenching rain and the last weeks heat should do wonders for germination. Yesterday I noticed a few corns poking through.
Next task is to put the finishing touches on the first hoophouse and put together the next one. It should go much quicker.
Thanks for coming out.
