New Plants from Heaven and Milk Jugs

















Today, Maria and Thure brought more plants from their greenhouse (Kale, Chive, Chard and Arnica).

































































Hoop houses are now being built over the beds containing kale, chard and lettuce.  In addition to our two existing hoop houses, six more beds will be covered for our winter food supply.









































Hoop houses are constructed with 1/2" Grey PVC (UV resistant) and 1/2' rebar to hold PVC in place.  They will get covered with UV resistant 6 mil greenhouse film.






















Gallon milk jugs are needed (the ones with a screw cap) to create the heat sinks inside the hoop house.  Jugs are filled with water and Rit black dye.  The black water absorbs the heat during the day and dissipates it at night, keeping the hoophouses warm.  Please, if you drink milk (or apple juice), save all your screw top gallon jugs for us.











































As always, the kids are having fun at Dandelion Ranch....
