The mylar would work I'm sure. The aluminum seems to work just right, blocking the light but not insulating against the warmth, if that makes sense. geek

sanderson wrote:After receiving 3"of rain recently, the weather has been in the 70s and 80s.  My seedlings are small but they are now outdoors, at least until the rain next weekend.  I have had trouble with my iPhone emailing photos to the PC, so I haven't been able to post any photos until today. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Seedli19

I'm in the process of amending the beds with homemade compost.  First I remove the wood grids or serpentine strings and the driplines.  Then dump in buckets of compost and roughly turning it under.  Replace the grid work and driplines.  The following photos are a 2' x 7' bed being amended and converted for summer.

It looked like this during the winter.  (Photo is actually a similar 2' x 8' bed.)  Yikes!  The ground looked so ugly before the wood chips were spread. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Winter15

Here is the 2' x 7' bed being amended and the PVC winter frames being swapped out for the tall overhead summer frames.  Compost has been added and the serpentine string restrung and the drip lines replaced in the bed. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Table_15

I store sets of frames in heavy plastic sleeves, cut to size.  The bottom is sealed using the seal-a-meal.  The tall poles are still in the bag in this photo and the winter gable frames will, in turn, be knocked apart and stored in the bag until October. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Table_16

Meanwhile, I started a new batch in the Lifetime Composter on March 26, using leaves, soaked alfalfa pellets, and veggies.  It was filled up to the top after this photo was taken. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Compos14

On day 2, March 27, it had shrunk quite a bit so I topped it off with more leaves, soaked alfalfa pellets, and gasp! expired canned food and packages!  Tomato sauce and diced tomatoes, oranges, cream of mushroom and celery soup, grains, canned cherries, beef broth, etc.!  Days 3, 4, 5 and 6 the temps reached 131*F, 148*F, 160*F and 160*F.  I have been turning it once a day to provide fresh oxygen and to let off some steam.  It was filled to the top ate this photo was taken. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Compos16

Day 6 after another turning and probe thermometer replaced. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Compos15

Last photo, I promise.  Last order from Baker Creek arrived. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Seeds_10
Hi Sanderson, I am interested in your lifetime tumbler. quality and sturdyness are my biggest concerns. Can you comment ? Thanks.

We have hit the summer solstice and the temps have hit the 100*F mark plus a few times.  From here on out it will be just plain hot with a few days of relief in the 90s.  As the weather changes, so do my plants.  Once fresh green, they no longer look like something out of Better Homes and Gardens. Sad   You could call this the early summer uglies, which will just get worse over the next 3 months.  I'm posting these photos to show newbies that not all gardens look beautiful,.  If they give you produce, they are "beautiful".

Cantaloupe and sweet melon planted 1/square in a 2'x4' bed with lots of trellising.  The lateral vines have escaped their cage! Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Cantal10

Hales cantaloupe.  I have some mesh produce bags that I will slip over the melons in case Rocky, a rat or the 'possum wants a snack. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Cantal11

Sweet Melon, new for me. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Melon_10

Cantaloupe left bed and Winter squash right bed. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 West_s10

The cutest little watermelon with lots of fuzz in the winter squash bed. It may or may not be pollinated enough. Time will tell. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Waterm10

Winter squash. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Winter10

Winter squash. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Winter11

Cucumbers taking a beating in the heat.  Still getting good Munchers, enough for one a day. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Cucumb10

The Blue lake bush beans have been producing well.  Leaves are yellowing and falling off and it looks a little wild right now.  As long as it produces I'm happy. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Bean_b10

Pepper box.  Not many peppers this year made it from seedling to planting.  So I added 2 Snow Fairy compact tomators and 2 Japanese Millionaire eggplants. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Pepper10

Indeterminate tomatoes and flowers with the wrap of trellis netting.  I really like the netting idea as it buys me time to get out and sort through the stems and unwanted suckers. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Tomato11

Tomato row in the BTE and 5-gallon buckets.  I finally wrapped the buckets with their aluminum foil protection. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Bte_to10

The corn planting was not a great success.  The trellis netting seems to be holding them upright at this stage.  I really, really need to have some horizontal "stops" in case there is a big gust of wind. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Corn_610

First cotton seedling to sprout, shown next to the only soy bean to sprout out of 72 beans! Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Cotton10

The cotton bed held the winter garlic.  I tried soy beans but they were a bust.  So 8 cotton seeds are planted here.  The bed immediately behind has the Dragon Tongue beans, which are producing nicely.  I put little wire fences around the perimeter but the bean plants have other plans. Camouflaged are the 2 totes with sweet potatoes vines showing.  In the background are BTE tomatoes.Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Cotton11

You have a lot of things going on there.  Hope you get a good harvest before the heat shuts some things down.  Lots and lots of trellises but they allow a lot of veggies to grow in a small area.  Congrats.

Rose, I will measure tomorrow. Probably 6' from the top of the Mel's Mix.

The PVC house frames work great for hail or rain storms with 4 mil plastic sheeting. In the winter they are covered with bridal tulle to protect the brassicas and kales, etc. against the white butterfly. If a storm comes up, I have a box of pre-cut and labeled plastic to quickly throw over the frames and tullle.

The trellised ones can be covered with sun shade. Sun shade for the house frames is actually suspended over head on paracord runners. Photos maybe tomorrow as we are in the 100s now.

Update on the garden after 1 1/2 months of +100*F degrees.  Some of the beds are being cleared, mostly due to spider mites.  The lawn is mostly yellow with some new varieties of weeds and grass from the leaves from a neighbor last fall.  Ken mowed the leaves last fall on the lawn and oh my goodness, what a collection of unwanted weeds and grasses!!  Shocked

SE corner  8-21-18.  Taken before the dying Dragon tongues were pulled in the evening.  The cotton and sweet potatoes are doing well.  The tomatoes are just starting to have a few flowers.  Since nothing will grow in the 1' x 4' table top, I'm thinking it may be a good garden tool box with a lid.  thinking   Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Garden16

South 8-21-18.  Cotton, flower bed on the right and some trampled purslane. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Garden18

SW 8-21-18.  Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Garden17

West 8-21-18.  Summer and winter squash are gone now. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Garden19

Amended dirt strip. Taken 8-9-18 - 2 extra pickling cucumbers that are doing surprisingly well in the heat.  They get shade starting about 1 PM. Sanderson's Urban SFG in Fresno, California - Page 4 Bte_ex10

August and early September in SoCal aren't my friends for gardening. While our weather isn't as hot typically as Fresno, we have higher overnight humidity.  Hence it tends to be PM mania time.

I always struggle this time of year with the debate of tearing out plants, trimming plants and hoping they rebound or letting it go.  My tomatoes look like they're about done. The leaves are speckled. PM is on the squash like mad.  And I can't seem to get green bush beans to germinate.  Don't know if its too hot or something eating the shoots off immediately.  

All the while my garden as a good undergrowth of 'weeds'.  Borage. :-), some grass, three or four other california weedy things.

I understand about wanting to rip out the plants at this time of the summer. The pink eye purple hull beans are doing great, but all of the "green" beans are done. Squashes, also. I would have removed the 6 remaining cantaloupe plants if not for the three fruits growing.

Thanks, Jimmy and AM

Jimmy, can you look at "Compost Tea Recipe" and give a comment on what I bought? Thanks.
