The soil has been turned. New plastic on hoop house. Added a few amendments. Sitting at 20% OM. Intention of adding clay loam to this sandy soil. Can see the 20 -24" pit.

Pump house shed. Built this to house the waters pumps and fertilizers. I've had some things go walking from the back yard.

thank you Dave for the wonderful seed assortment. 1803 hoelke is the front runner. I got the electricity and water running into the pump house. Also turning the soil, bury drip line 8" off base, about 13" below surface.

Here is my hopefully. Soaking today in humic/ kelp mix as per bottle recommendations. In heated pots tonight. Used plugs this year and potting mix on top of soil in each pot. Have been sprouting for a week now, one seed everyother day. Mostly for back ups and testing. All though a 1043 Chan has been thriving........

A lot of upgrades this year. Installing heating cables - a lovely gift from santa ;). I should be getting soil results back any day, so I can add amendments to top 7" before shovelling back in and closing off far end. Slowly getting overhead sprinklers hooked up. Two 8 foot fluorescents, (400w) should help in the spring and fall....... and during smoke season. Heater with a blower and cooling fan. Fingers crossed it doesn't keep blowing the upgraded breakers.... 150 sqft comp....... look out!

Here is the official 150 square foot layout. It's exactly 8 feet between the two outside boards, and 18.75 ft long. I'll remove the plywood once I'm finished walking on it.
