:thumbup

Reminds me of my stepdad. He always had the BEST gardens and he loved nothing better than working up a sweat out in the garden. He was in his 80s and one day, while working in the garden, stopped for a sip of ice tea and died in his lawn chair with his hand still around the glass. He died doing what he loved the most, which is how I want to go.

Shouldn't be long! chuckle

i had the idea that fresh compost is hot, too hot for plants to survive....so we dug trenches and filled them with hot spent mushroom compost and covered it with 6 " of soil....then we planted in the soil.... the plants have been covered with frost cloth and then greenhouse plastic .... they have been watered 3 times all winter, never been weeded and have no pests to speak of.... the black pots that the mustard greens are in are filled with the hot compost and 6 " soil on top.

very slow growing, and if i had started sooner, i would have had greater success, i certain plants did not survive as well as others, .... but many did !!
next year will be amazing !

or buy a greenhouse heater?

I cant seem to post a pic

I go to image uploader

and select

but cant figger how to get the selection to post

I was thinking of one of those heavy thermal mass heaters

it would hold heat for a very long time

and require minimal firewood

I built an outdoor oven with clay, sand and local mats

just twigs can heat it and the heat stays all nite

I would make bread/pies etc during the day

and throw a pot of navy beans/water to cook overnite

I think putting some rain gutters on to empty into some rain barrels would be neat

Servo/thermostat controlled vents ..heater and fans and you would really have it going on....and shade cloth for the summer.
I'm propagating under the kitchen cabinets and in the windows chuckle
Awesome set up...you're living the dream.

I'm impressed and inspired
