Quick hoops up!

Erecting quick hoops

I probably shouldn't admit to breaking our household rules (no working on the weekends!), but I got up the morning after Mark's grand return and immediately started poking quick hoops into the ground.

After all, due to our late gardening start, lettuce, kale, and brussels sprouts all looked like they might not produce this fall. But with a little help from row-cover fabric, perhaps they'll bear after all?

Good luck with the hoops. Thank you for answering my greenhouse question. I know we're a bit behind on the gardening game so we've decided to just wait on it. However I have started somethings indoors, like a sweet potato vine that I will plant come spring and I have a carrot top that I am rooting also. Still looking into the mushrooms, I think mushrooms are one of my favorite things to eat.
