Moving the quick hoops
The kale no longer needs
covering, so I've moved our quick
hoops on to spring
crops. After mending
the fabric last
week, though, I left the covers off because I wanted rain to wet the manure I added to the recently
planted beds. Now cold weather is on its way back, so I figured
it was time to put the fabric on.
I initially cut my quick
hoop fabric to run the entire length of a mule garden bed. Since
the areas that currently need protection aren't quite that long, I
ended up untying the knot at one end of the fabric and retying it
further in. This is equivalent to using a safety pin to take up
pants for a kid who's going to grow more later.
Despite a bit of wind,
it only took about fifteen minutes to get two new beds under
cover. The third quick hoop was already in place covering the
earliest planting of lettuce. Now we're ready for March to go out
like a lion.
