Seedlings for the hoophouse

Today I planted broccoli (Waltham and Premium Crop), cauliflower (Graffiti), Brussells sprouts (Oliver and Falstaff), and lettuce (Batavian cv Magenta) for the hoophouse, and Dan transplanted some lettuce he started 2 weeks ago. It was a good day to plant as we’ve had rain showers all day, and it has been very humid, ugh.

We’ve had very dramatic severe thunderstorm warnings and even a tornado watch, but fortunately for us, thus far the rain has been moderate and we’ve had no strong winds, let alone a tornado. Several communities in New Hampshire were hit by severe winds/tornados; we are lucky.

Now I need to remember to start more seedlings every week for 6 more weeks. I’m hoping I can be growing cold hardy plants up to Thanksgiving, 18 weeks away today, maybe even Christmas. Can it be done? We’ll see!

    Congrats to you! We’ve been hoophouse voyeurs for a few years, but still haven’t tried one in our yard. How big is yours? I’ve heard the footprint is important here in chilly Maine.
