July 2017 Greenhouse Notes

I was just watering some green onions in the greenhouse. Beds are mostly cleaned out now. It is time to start seedlings for fall but I am concerned it is too warm.

There is shade cloth on as well as the plastic, which is pulled up for cross ventilation. I need the plastic on as this is also my planting shed and storage for seed starting supplies. But it traps heat and keeps the beds dry, save around the edges.

Maybe we can add another layer of shade cloth. Better to try that first than spend money on shadier cloth.

Also need some drip irrigation. I have old soaker hoses to try. Need to test them out.

These are my thoughts between painting and watering.
