April on the farm Spring is coming slow!

High Tunnel complete
We have finished the erection of the high tunnel.
I added trellis to hang the Tomatoes and Cucumbers they will grow vertically and up to 8 feet tall. I installed the drip irrigation, it works but i have to drain the pump and lines at night too cold . In spite of the weather being cold we planted 20 pounds of potatoes on 4-14 need to have them in by "Good Friday you know"

WE planted 200 plants under row cover out side before the snow 4-12

There are 3 rows that will have supports for hanging the tomatoes and cucumbers we can add two more if we want.
We planted 70  Lettuce, Broccoli, and Cauliflower and onions 4-12 in the high tunnel
