    Added wet dirt to the interior yesterday, stuck the tractor a time or 2, FEL gets ya out.. Since it was in the previous garden spot a lot of leveling is needed.. So not much progress on the greenhoophouse but I did start and complete a green raised bed.. 24" tall, 32" wide panel dictated, and 10 ft long.. We like it, the asparagus will be dug up and put in the 1st one.. Several more of various colors to come.. 20191109_134159.jpg

    Got a wee bit done during this beautiful weekend, always wish I had gotten more done but the backyard always calls my name as the sun is setting.. So I shot more bullets than I drove screws, awesome weather we had here.. Got 1 more raised bed done, this time a 5x10', we dug up the asparagus last weekend and put it in the 1st bed to find out it was WAY over crowded.. It's safe for now and I'll move it to the new bed another day..
    Got most of the door frame in, pipe wrap on all the panel butts and 1 pc of flat sheet metal down that will be the flooring.. A 5 x 10 holds a lot of dirt..

    10 months later, LOL, It didn't get plastic until recently, the kung flu has peat moss as hard to find as 9mm.. Peat moss is a must have to make the soil right.. We grew a bit in the pots over the summer but this is the season where these really come into play..The plastic is held on by wiggle wire track and wiggle wire at the bottom and then there is 2500lb mule/pull tape that runs across the width of it and is pulled tight. This set up allows the plastic to be taken out of the track and lifted for air / temp control..Next up is getting 2 doors put together.. Nothing impressive to look at currently but we've planted cabbage, lettuce, carrots, beets, and radish.. IIRC.. 20200922_105747.jpg 20200922_111214.jpg

    LOL, there was a black fur that started on the Italian oregano, real funky and it looked to be alive and breathing so I let it be.. It grew well but it was a booger keeping dirt in the pot.. Then 1 day while watering it metamorphosed into a puppy, 1st thing it did was bite me so I'm reluctant to try and sprout more with as many times as this 1 has made me bleed..

    The fall crop of green beans is setting beans, if the weather cooperates we'll boost our green bean store.. 20201003_105808.jpg
