The Year Without A Fall

 

I called last year the year with no summer.  Its quickly looking like this year is the year with no Fall.  We’ve been dipping into 30 degree temperatures for about a week now and flurries are forecasted for this weekend.  The good news is that my spinach and lettuce are loving this weather. 

I’ve got two rows of lettuce under low row covers I made from PVC film and 1/2 inch water line.  I stuck the water line ends in the ground and made a half hoop and then put the plastic over the hoops and secured at the ends.  It really is a neat and cheap solution.

Speaking of PVC I was able to complete my grow light stand system from 3/4″ PVC pipe and fitting last night.  It looks really nice except I’m missing one fitting since I bought one that was threaded and obviously wouldn’t fit.  It is a much neater solution than what I had last year.  I won’t even take pictures since I’m so embarassed by it.

So…what did you do in your garden this week?
