Well, you are all getting ahead of me and I am in a warmer state.

We completed these hoops yesterday on an existing raised bed. The soil was double dug twice, thrown in the air during digging and then during the second double dig some new organic soil was added.

I am behind because my DH has been ill. But I got 2 young backs to help me. The hoops are on rebar. I want them tall because I can also use sun screen material to keep the tomatoes and peppers from getting burned.

I used to wrap each tomato cage but now I am going to wrap by section. Probably 3 hoops per section. I just think that will be easier for me. The area is protected so wind should not be a problem.

We are having a cold spell over the weekend so I am going to lay down some black garbage bags to try and warm the soil and then next Tuesday I will plant the seeds for lettuce and such and plants for the tomato and peppers. Plants are in a friends greenhouses. He does it for a living so he takes care of them for me. One less thing to worry about.

We also have a short growing season but ours is because of the heat. LOL.

Thank you for all your info. Sharon.
