Well the weather turned cold but it was a good time to check out the latest research in High Tunnel Production so I attended the2 day  Minnesota State Wide High Tunnel Conference, In Brainerd Lakes, Minnesota, Tuesday and Wednesday of last week. So much great information i was pleased to see Dr Steve Bogash, Horticulture Extension Educator/Researcher | Penn State University he always has so Much great information. His speciality is Tomatoes, Peppers, & Cucumbers in High Tunnels.
