We've also had a lot of rain the past couple of weeks so that's kept me indoors as well. Looking at the plants this morning I've realized two things, one: even mother nature sometimes overwaters (a few of the squash varieties have very yellow leaves) and two: I really need some hoop frames to better control temp and some of this excessive water we're getting. It needs to be a bit warmer and dryer.
So my question to those of you using material for hoop frames, what do you like best? I'm pretty handy with a sewing machine so I was thinking I could make sleeves for the pvc pipe to slide through or is that overkill? Are clips better? What do you say?
PS: Looks like good news with the toms... they're putting out new growth and are starting to look a little better. I was wondering there for a while. Bad news? Lost the cucumbers but I sort of thought I might. It's really too cold for them still. They need to go out the same time as the peppers and basil, etc. I still have a few from starts growing under lights so I should be okay. They could be potted up though. Also hope it stays dry long enough today to reseed the carrots that were duds and didn't come up on the first round of planting.
