What’s Happening in the Garden?

March 6th, 2009

Yesterday was a beautiful day here in NE Ohio. It was sunny and in the 50’s; just the kind of weather I have been longing for. Naturally we spent the afternoon working the gardens getting ready for spring.
So what garden chores did we do yesterday afternoon? Here are the tools we used.
The supplies we used to complete our chores, all measured and ready to go.
The supplies after we had been working for a while. Can you guess what’s going on here at Chiot’s Run?

    My guess is a hoophouse too! I’d like to get on that this year, but with all the expansions happening, I just don’t think I’ll have the time.

    That’s one serious hoop house! I just used PVC, hehe. Looks good if that’s what it is. If not, I’m clueless.
