    Moruga, weather still says 10 days no freeze.

    Rymerpt, give a google to Kentucky State University High Tunnel Plans. If you can not find them, send me a PM. My plans are based on theirs. Will be posting photos. If it turns out well, will post plans.

    What are you going to do about the amount of sun that's out in the winter? I'm sure also this is all money from your pepper sales? If not your business is already losing.

    sicman, exactamundo. The first high tunnel is an experiment. I have no idea how peppers will grow with the decreased light. But I am fairly sure it would be cheaper to heat in the spring than I currently spend on lights indoors. So I think it is a win even if the current crop fails. Yep, business pays for business costs. I am very careful about that, using a separate atm card for all business purchases and never for non business purposes. Have to because that way I down load the csv fi...

    Fiance laughs because I'll be sitting there in deep thought and she will ask me what I am thinking about. I'll respond "I'm thinking about the last time I touched hot pepper, because my balls itch."

    It's been 3 years and that still gets a laugh.

    I scratched. 30 seconds of relief. 30 minutes of pain. I need a bathtub. Had my mother come live with us when she could no longer climb stairs. Took out the bathtub when she could no longer step over the side. Been 8 years, can no longer provide for her needs, getting a damn bath tub when she goes to assisted living.

Trying to dig post holes in dry clay is killing me. Why oh why didnt I dig the post holes before planting the garden. Oh ye, was broke and couldnt stand.

    Hogleg, resorted to soaking with water. Its not just clay, it is almost hard pan from lack of rain. I have been watering the rows, but they are raised, nice n fluffy. The corners where the poles are going are two inches of top soil, then red KY clay. After about two foot I have blue clay. Got one stinking hole done today.

    Good luck in whatever you do! Just don't get a big head and end up so busy that you don't have time to teach your employees the proper way to scoot down a row on a skateboard to plant pepper starts.

    They are towards the bottom of this page. Funny to note the photos of the critters get hit a lot more than photos of peppers.

    When I was their age, I dug holes and built undergound forts to smoke pot. My children play minecraft , Instagram and Skype their friends. Not a bad thing.



    FIFY.

    Having two teenagers, Maybe leaving the 80s back in the 80s isn't a bad thing.
