What we're up to:

This week are working on a new winter project! We have been looking at how to get more growing room for the winter months that would produce a lot of produce and give us some diversity and BOOM, we are going to use our old greenhouse as a deep winter greenhouse! (if you don't know what a deep winter greenhouse is, start googling, they are very cool). Currently we are curing onions and winter squash in there but as soon as they are done, we will pull all the tables and 'junk' out, install 4 raised beds and hang 50 gutter trays from the rafters on the south side (growing vertically to utilize as much space and heat as possible). Then we are making a heat sink-80 black buckets filled with water to capture the heat during the day and release it night; this should help cut back on heating costs. If this works out this winter we can then invest in that structure next year to resemble the outside design of a deep winter greenhouse to capture more sunlight. We are supper excited!!! (Ill post pictures on our blog when we get it done)
