Back in June…
First week October…
Video and blog post from June:
This is my first video review of the new FoodForestFarm.com project, the Mediterranean “Figgery” Greenhouse. Throughout the last two months (April, May 2018) we’ve been cleaning out the old sheep “barn” of manure and bedding to establish a growing area for eight hardy fig varieties, mixed in with other edible crops including: perennial kale, seedless Concord grapes, strawberries, artichokes, and planting this fall, garlic bulbs. My plan is to post video updates throughout the season as the system progresses. Excuse my newbie video editing skills, I’m just getting the hang of it 🙂
If you have any questions about what I’m up to with this greenhouse, like why I picked these particular plants, soil questions, why figs, etc… leave a note in the comments section.
Update for December:
Last night it was 10 degrees F outside the greenhouse and 43 degrees F inside the “figloo”. As the winter proceeds I will continue to check on the temperatures and observing the condition of the figs, as well as the perennial kale and artichokes that are also under the insulation of the figloo.
