Sarah & I have been hard at work getting the garden started for the spring. We picked up a tiny greenhouse, some plant heating mats, and some grow lights.
The greenhouse seems to be doing pretty well. It doesn’t seem to be constructed especially well, but that shouldn’t matter too much. We’re just going to use it to start plants in the spring and then pack it up when the last frost date passes.
The plants in the little green house have grown really quickly — we had to build a coldframe for more room. We’re experimenting with a heating mat under the coldframe and we also put some of the mylar bubblewrap insulation underneath.
Last year the soil in our beds wasn’t the best so we’ve been working to add home made compost, store bought compost, and other organic materials.
