1513 Sherwood is now 20 days old. OTT 75 (C:30, B: 22, S:23). After all that great growth of greenery during January and February I expected that maybe the plant would grow a bit quicker. Obviously, I need to work some stuff out for next year. I certainly need to increase the size of the tunnel. 400 sf just isn't big enough -- for a lot of reasons (too tough for an old man to negotiate once the vines fill the tunnel.) Soil is still a work in process. Soil report from Western Labs shows boron is a bit low and I need some manganese and iron in my plots. The heat is still the big concern. No electricity, so I can't artificially control the temperatures. Think I need to replace some of the greenhouse plastic with some insect screen. Maybe that will help with air circulation.
