Hi, I’m David Epstein. This is Growing Wisdom. We are in my vegetable garden, it is November 12 and I’ve got a lot of stuff growing. We are zone 6, temperature’s been down to 25º and I’m planting seeds. How am I doing it?
Well I have to head to Johnny selected seeds, you know I’ve been working with them for awhile now here at Growing Wisdom. And they’ve talked about building these low tunnels. We got one of their hoop benders, bends some hoops, put the plastic on and this allow us to extend the season.
So what we’re doing is we’re growing underneath the plastic like a little green house. If I need to work under here I can lift the plastic off work while the temperature is above freezing and put it back down at night.
There are a couple of different uses for these. One is you can continue to grow through the fall, things like lettuces and radish. I’m going to take another harvest start up here probably later on November, early December. You can also start some plants like lettuces, carrots, some of the kales and collards underneath this time of the year. Then will go dormant when it really cold, December, early January, late January, early February, sun gets higher this heats up, things begin to grow again weeks ahead of time.
If it does get warm it’s important to open this up and let some airflow. If you noticed a lot of condensation inside watch, your soil very carefully. If it begins to dry out you might have to water. The moisture will heat the top of this and then run down the sides and your soil could dry out too quickly before your seeds have really established themselves.
You also have to watch for insects as well because not only will your plants be wintering over some of those insects might too. So I’ve got some experimenting going on under here. We’ve labeled everything, we’ve got dates, and we’re keeping a notebook. We’re going to see what does well, what winters over well, or what doesn’t winter over so well. But I’m going to be eating some lettuce here for thanks giving and hopefully right through the holiday season using my low tunnel.
Come back every week for all our tips and synopses here at Growing Wisdom.
