I'm having some of the same trouble, Ruggr. There are no indoor growing lights but the greenhouse didn't even have walking room
a few days ago. Moving the cool-season plants out to harden off and now, out into the garden - has helped.
We haven't had a 70Ã‚Â°F day. (Yes, I know I was just complaining about not having a 60Ã‚Â° day!
) Frost can certainly happen anytime here during the month of May.
I have long had an unheated plastic tunnel (9' by 20') to take the overflow from the greenhouse. I also have several hoopies
out on the lawn. The tunnel has 2 beds growing bok choy and such so additional plants can only sit across the center aisle at which point - there's no walking room
Both the tunnel and the hoopies
are the simplest things: just plastic film stretched over pvc pipe fitted over short pieces of rebar driven into the ground. On the hoopies
, the plastic is gathered and tied to stakes at both ends.
are held down along the sides by boards and I can roll the plastic up on a board during the daytime for ventilation and exposure to the sun.
