Extend your season and planting space for more fresh from the garden flavor.
Hothouses provide a warm environment to jump start the season and extend it long past the first killing frost. Peas and other cool season crops can get an early start.
A recycled tablecloth can provide production boosting red mulch.
Grass clippings free of chemicals make a great mulch. They add nutrients, moisture and organic matter to the soil while helping suppress the weeds.
An old gazebo provides support for cucumbers and other climbers. And other found objects including a slinky can create a unique tomato tower.
A bit more information: Floating row covers sold as ReeMay, Harvest Guard, and Fast Grass let air, light, and water through while capturing the heat around the plant. This is an easy and affordable way to extend the growing season.
