Greenhouse Destruction

Last year we bought a greenhouse to extend our growing season from the company http://www.deltacanopy.com
Almost 1 year later we are removing the greenhouse.
According to the website the film is now UVA and UVB protected, I don’t remember it that way before.

This Polyethylene film was not UV protected. The plastic was brittle, cracking, shrinking, and ripping with the press of your finger. If you buy a hot house like this make sure the skin is UV protected.

On a side note, the 1.34 inch steel welded frame is holding strong and can easily be skinned with another plastic.

Garden Status As Of Late March

I have been debating on whether to put a video up I shot a few days ago because I made a complete garden fail video. I am still debating on whether to show that video or not or how to spin in to something that everyone can learn from. I also show off my seed starts and seedlings in this video to show you what the kids and I planted for the summer crops. Also talk about the greenhouse and how crazy the weather in Arkansas has been.
