Fall Gardening

The hoop house is in a state of transition:

This weekend, S and I worked in the hoop house. Old plants had to be pulled up. The beds needed to be weeded and hoed, and, since the first round of planting didn’t really take, we replanted. We put in spinach, kale, lettuce, and broccoli.

Pretty much every time I enter the hoop house, I have an overwhelming sense of ‘I have NO IDEA what I’m doing’. Luckily, S knows what’s going on…

(The hoop house is designed to keep in heat. Here you can see the temperature inside the hoop house, and what my phone says is the temperature outside)
