After my thumb had a day of rest, (if you missed it, my thumb had an unfortunate encounter with a mandolin slicer), we finally got the plastic over the hoop house.
The clips I bought to secure the plastic to the hoop house didn’t work so we hillbilly-ed it and used ratchet straps.
We still need to close off the ends of the greenhouse but this will hold us for a few more weeks.
The peppers now have some extra warmth and the fall garden has protection from the decreasing temperatures.
I was sad to get an email from Guerneys that they ran out of nectarine trees before getting to my order. Besides not adding to the “orchard” this year, there’s now a big empty spot in the greenhouse and I don’t know what to fill it with.
