Despite the frigid winter temps outside, the solar high tunnel has averaged a relatively balmy 52.4 degrees F during the last month. As a result, we’ve been able to continue growing a variety of leafy greens, and we’ve even gotten some radishes, spinach, and some lettuce varieties to come up nicely with direct seeding.
While the early going has been good, we’re facing our share of challenges too. We’ve begun to notice a few indoor pests attacking some of the plants. And we have also had to deal with frozen water lines.
Despite a few bumps, things are looking good in the solar high tunnel and we’re excited to continue growing in the space.
