I know!!! I just love the classes! I get so overwhelmed and excited at the same time.

Last night we talked about growing veggies and extending the season... wow, so much with rowcovers, hoops, wall o' waters, mulching...

Did you know?
1. Black mulch only heats the soil about 2 or 3 degrees? It gets quite warm itself but does not transfer the heat to the soil very well. Clear plastic is more like 10 degrees - that's 3-4 weeks early! Red plastic is a total waste unless you live somewhere with little sunlight. (Not Utah.)
2. In Paris in 1910 there were about 2,000,000 bell jars used in home gardens for protecting young plants.
