Getting a jump start on your summer vegetables is hard this time of year. You can get your plants in the ground, but a quick frost could wipe them out pretty quickly. We found a tool that will help your tender plants make it to the warmer days of spring.
The Mini-hooper is an instant mini hoop house and it is just right to protect your smaller garden plants. You can use it with the shade cloth and insect screen to get your plants off to a good start. It is also great in the fall to extend your growing season. Sue Berg of New Dimension Seeds carries this product on her website, or you can pick one up at either location of Portland Nursery. Sue will also have some available at Gardenpalooza. Stop by at Fir Point Farms on April 4th and pick one up.
