Notes from our gathering on March 30th
by Wendy Smith
The row cover system can used lots of different ways: veggie netting to protect from fruit fly, cabbage moth or white butterfly, etc; builders plastic to create a mini hot house to extend the warmer season (starting tomatoes, beans and corn at the end of August!); or shade cloth to protect coriander from the heat. As Lou mentioned, keeping your growing bed area to a standard size enables you to use the same set-up across all beds and for all sorts of protection.
