High Tunnel Heat


Yesterday, temperatures in Gibsonia creeped into the high 30s, which cranked up the temperature in the solar high tunnel to 90 degrees! I was dressed for 15 degree weather (which is how cold it was when I left my house in Pittsburgh in the morning), so upon entering the SHT I had to remove several layers, including one pair of pants.

Some of the greens seem to be struggling in the heat, so we removed the Agribond and plastic covers and gave them a healthy drink. The kale is looking the best, and the radishes we planted between rows are starting to germinate. We broke up some of the compacted soil and prepared the beds for more planting. More greens!
