Nice Hardcore, I have a few hanging around too. I loved the winter this year and hope we have more of those mild ones in the future.

That is a sweet little set up, What are the floor dimensions of it? I may use it as a template for my build when I put one up as wind destroyed my canvas on my greenhouse. Im going to guess about 8x12??

That's 12' x 16' using 2'x8' 4x4 post 1' in the ground. It was just a quick easy method to do and it worked out nice.

For small and temporary, go get one of these at Wal Mart.

Those are good for seedlings but the easy way is to buy one of these. http://www.ebay.com/...738.m2548.l4275

Yes you need a vent and a fan or you'll fry the plants. It's also a good idea to have a vent open automatically so you don't get busy and forget. You may also need a shade cloth when it get hotter later in the year.


Good Luck and once you have a small one you'll be hooked.

With the winter being so warm this year both the crab and crawfish season has been great. The crawfish prices hasn't been bad either, $50 a 35lb sack for the last few months but the price is going up as it always does for Good Friday and Easter. After Easter most of the crawfish farmers stop catching because the price will drop too low for them to make money and it'll be time to plant rice.


The Wildlife & Fisheries closed the commercial crabbing for a month because they were worried about catching too many, the recreational limit in Rockerfeller Wildlife Refuge is 12 dozen. A boat is nice but not required to catch a limit. You can drive and set lines baited with chicken parts and use a net to catch them. I've been there at day break and left at 9AM with 12 dozen many times, that's almost the rule if you catch the tide moving in the right direction.



The plants didn't make it in the ground today either, it sucks getting old. I woke up with a sore hip and was lazy till the afternoon. I did retill 9 90' rows in the garden, tomorrow I'll till a few more times to get the soil fluffy the way I like it, fertile and probably plant okra, PHP's and maybe set in some tomato plants. I'm gonna wait for the peppers another week just to be sure we won't have that random freeze but if the 10 day forecast looks good next week all the peppers go in dirt.
