January 2014 greenhouse!

I’m really pleased with the hoop house this season. We got the plastic up later than we intended this fall, but a lot of work on the bracing structure reduced the ‘thwapping’ in the wind. Reducing the air exchange also helped with the warmth overnight. I diligently packing-taped any hole and we added two more 55 gallon barrels full of water for a total of four to increase thermal mass. The plants are loving it!!

This morning I also had a fresh young coconut banana blueberry smoothie.

We save the pulp from the juice and make a corn bread with about equal parts corn meal and juice pulp plus some salt and baking powder. Goes well with black bean green chili soup.

Increased and improved germination

I am very excited to share that the use of the electric blanket under the seedling containers i talked about in a previous post (starting seeds indoors) seems to be dramatically increasing and improving germination. I started half the veggie seeds about a week before the second half. I only added the electric blanket under them when I started the second bunch. And that second bunch is sprouting much more quickly than the first bunch.

Seeds are beginning to sprout

The seeds are starting to become seedlings! I think the habitat I made for them is to their liking!
