we have been eating out of the hoop house for at least a month – mostly arugula, swiss chard and mustard greens for salad. rather than purchase new seeds i just sowed heavily what old seed we had. i had pretty poor results, and plenty of spots were left blank. later i went and bought some new seed and seeded two beds in spinach and one in arugula. this photo was taken a few weeks ago – and these plantings are actually further along now, i’m expecting that they will be ready to harvest in a couple more weeks – and since it’s more spinach and arugula than we can eat i’m planning on selling a little to help offset the cost of building the hoop. we also planted a mid october planting in those blank spaces left over from the poorly germinating seed- which should be ready quite late if at all this year – it may be the first harvest of next year.
