Post  htanguay 9/1/2012, 7:03 pm

So this summer I finished building all my boxes..woohoo! I have 3 6x2 and 6x1. The 6x1 were an after thought when my tomato plants took over and blocked all my smaller plants Sad I also had some issues with an animal-probably a wild animal as well as 2 dogs Cool that seemed to have gotten into the garden at times and eaten some things.

Doing research I saw PVC hoop houses with covering you can use to help deter some pests/animals. It seems simple enough. I am hoping to do this and use it for some fall winter crops. I am wondering if there is anyone in this area with the PVC hoop houses that grows year round? If so...what do you grow?

Thanks!
Heidi

It' is just too dang cold here in New Hampshire to grow anything all year 'round without heat. I can extend my season quite a bit on either side of winter with hoops over the beds and cold hardy vegetables, but there is nothing going to grow in my yard December through March.

Since last winter was so mild, the collards, kale & mustard spinach kept going in my kitchen garden that is in full sun and well protected from winds. But that was without cover and the exception rather than the norm.

I, too, am going to experiment with hoops this winter and see if I can make it happen again. I just read that everything in the cabbage family is winter tolerant, so those may be the way to go in the hoops.

Let's keep posting on our experiments & comparing notes as the winter progresses, Heidi.

Actually, you can HARVEST all year with hoops and row covers. You plant early enough to have them mature then harvest during the winter. Try looking at Eliot Coleman's "four season harvest". Awesome book

At my age I'll be glad when the season is done for me. I start teaching piano lessons next week and that will take up 2 days. The rest of the time I just want to visit my great grandkids, grandkids and do my hobby things.

I remember when my Mom was this age she said she loved it when she didn't have to do summer things after October. I used to wonder why. Now I know.

Yes, about February I will be complaining about not being ready to plant. We humans are never satisfied.

Isn't that the truth great granny! I am going to experiment with a few winter veggies in the plant this year and see how that goes! We get really cold winters here so I am not sure how long it will last!

I have read Eliot Coleman's book and it is still not feasible for where I live here in New England, and I also look forward to a rest from the garden. I believe he uses heated greenhouses, for the most part, in the dead of winter.
I usually have enough food put up for the winter that it's not a problem for me.

Nope he was trialing it but went back to the unheated.

"All of our trials in the cool houses and all of our speculations about how to do it better are fascinating, but we remain content with our decision, as mentioned earlier, not to continue in that direction. We now add minimal heat to only one small growing area where we still do a few trials, but we may end even that. The challenge of the simple, minimalist, unheated production is where our hearts lie and where we will concentrate our efforts."

Just something I am going to try...will be interesting to blend his methods with sfg.
