I checked the hoop house this afternoon. It’s been elevated from hoop shack back to hoop house. The temperature inside was …(picture me doing the happy dance)…54 degrees.
I feel better now. Nothing was kneeled over on the ground, so I guess we made it through the hump. Here’s a quick picture.
I don’t know why the peas on the left have spotty germination, except maybe the squirrels or the birds got to them. But since I never had any luck with peas before I’m a happy camper.
- Row covers/hoop houses will aid in seed germination before your last frost date, especially in a raised bed
- Row covers/hoop houses will protect young plants from freezing weather
- Row covers/hoop houses will raise the inside temperature as much as 20 degrees
- Newly sprouted pea plants, turnip plants and onion plants can survive at least one snowfall
