First Planting in the High Tunnel – Gardening 2019

November 29, 2019


Hi I’m Erin. The sun is shining, snow is on the ground
and even though it’s only January its time to start planting and getting ready for the
2019 garden season. Today we plant the first seeds of the year
on Our Wyoming Life. Somehow the first of year has already come
and gone. The new year for me always bring a sense of
new beginnings, resolutions and hopes for the next 12 months. Now I’m not much of a new year resolution
type person. But I do always have plans for the gardens. So maybe my resolutions revolve around growing
veggies. Even before Christmas the first of the seed
catalogs started arriving and in the last few days multiple catalogs are in the mailbox
daily. Every growing season I have success and failure. A common saying for most growers that I know,
is that maybe next year will be better. Of course, we all have crops that do extremely
well but there’s always one or two that could have been better. It might have been the weather or germination
failure or several things that just didn’t go your way. Gardeners, farmers and ranchers are eternally
optimistic that the next year will be better. Audrey Hepburn once said that to plant a garden
is to believe in tomorrow. I couldn’t agree more! Most of what we do on the ranch is part of
the long game. Naturally there are the daily chores of food
and water for the animals and the gardens but without planting the seeds early in the
season there’s no need for water. Without putting the bulls with the cows, there’s
no calves in the spring. My success in the gardens comes because of
an abundance of optimism, planning, work and failure. See failing at gardening isn’t really failing. It’s learning what not to do in most cases. Every year the plan gets tweaked just a little
bit. Seeding dates might change or a new variety
of carrot is chosen. Always with the hope that this year will be
better and an improvement upon last year. Winter growing is a testament of optimism. This is our second year of growing year-round
with no heat and it’s going great. I’ve already harvested one bed of salanova
lettuce, bags full of spinach and an abundance of radishes. Now that we are past the shortest day of the
year it’s time to get more seeds in the ground for an early spring harvest and do
some maintenance on the crops and beds in the high tunnel. Every plant that gets transplanted into the
gardens starts the same way. In our house. We need more Salanova lettuce for an April
and May harvest. Our plug trays are ready to go. Seed starting mix is also used for all our
transplants. The soil is dumped into a large tub and a
ton of water is added until the soil is damp but not overly saturated. The plugs are filled with the damp soil. Handfuls of dirt are placed into the tray
and the soil is worked into the plugs. Each plug is pressed down to lightly compact
the soil then we have room for the seed to go in. Salanova lettuce germinates extremely well
so one seed is added to each plug. Today we are planting the Salanova premier
collection and the foundation collection. This will give us 8 different types of lettuce. Once the seeds are deposited a light layer
of dirt is added to the top and the soil is lightly patted. Also, being planted today is some cabbage
and broccoli seed. These seeds are extremely tiny, and they don’t
germinate as well as the lettuce. 2-3 seeds are added into each plug. Later on we can trim any extra seedlings that
come up leaving us one seedling per plug. After both trays are finished, they are moved
into the basement into our small indoor greenhouses underneath our daylight fluorescent lights. The lights will be left on 24 hours per day
until germination is complete. Outside the sun is shining and inside the
high tunnels is a beautiful day to work. Row cover is removed from the crops and piled
up on one side of the high tunnel. The kale has been growing in here for almost
a year now and you just can’t get it to stop. And yes, half the high tunnel is covered in
grass. I really don’t know where this grass came
from and it’s something that will have to be dealt with later. Hose is moved out of the way and the water
bottles that are used for heat are picked up from the old bed of Salanova Lettuce that
has already been harvested. During the day the bottles warm up with the
sun and cool off slowly at night helping to keep the lettuce from freezing. We still have a few radishes in the ground
that can be harvested. We need to make room for a new planting of
spinach, so all the remaining radishes are picked. I will take them in the house and we will
have a radish feast. We will be replacing the Salanova bed with
more Salanova once the newly seeded plants are ready to come outside in about 4-5 weeks. For now, though it’s time to clear out the
weeds. The wheel hoe with the stirrup attachment
is run over the bed and it does a nice job of popping everything loose. The radish bed also gets the wheel hoe run
over it. A landscape rake is a great tool to have in
the garden. It’s big and makes quick work of cleaning
off any weeds left over and levels out the soil. We have some small salanova lettuce that has
been in the high tunnel for a while now. It hasn’t grown very much but for the most
part it’s still alive. The water bottles are removed and now is as
good of time as any to clean out a few weeds. A stirrup hoe is on my list of essential tools
to have in the garden. I prefer it to a traditional how and it’s
faster and easier to use and I believe it’s more effective than a traditional hoe. Now that our days are longer these small heads
of lettuce should start turning into much bigger heads of lettuce. After the hoeing is down the water bottles
get added back into the bed. The old Salanova bed also get a pass with
the landscape rake. There’s still a lot of lettuce root matter
left over and grass clumps which just get tossed to the side. After everything is raked and hoed the best
are ready for their next planting and the lettuce looks so pretty soaking up the suns
rays. Where the radishes were growing is being replace
with spinach. I’m planning on one more harvest from our
existing spinach bed and then that bed will be replaced with our broccoli and cabbage. By doing a new planting we will have a consistent
supply of spinach for our customers. The earthway seeder is a relatively inexpensive
seeder that in my opinion is worth every penny that it costs. It makes seeding extremely fast and won’t
break the bank. It’s a tool I recommend all the time. I’ve used this seeder for 7 seasons and
although I could upgrade to a fancier seeder this one still works great so I keep using
it. It’s time for water. A sprinkler is set up and hose is laid out. Winter watering isn’t the funnest project. The well that we use in the summertime has
above ground lines to the high tunnel, so it can’t be used in the winter. Again, a project for another day. In the winter we water the high tunnels off
my mom’s house. It’s better than hauling water in a tank
and this way just the hose must be drug around. This is a tangled mess but eventually the
job gets done. You might notice that this is a gate I’m
pulling the hose under. It doesn’t open. That would be too easy. The mighty Wyoming wind kept blowing the gate
open even with it latched and my moms’ dog would get out. Mike screwed the fence shut until a wind proof
gate latch system could be installed. Another project for another day. Eventually I make it over to the faucet and
get the hosed hooked up and turned on. Back to the high tunnel and it’s time to
water. I just open up the shutoff valve in between
two hose sections and we’re in business. The sprinkler will water for about 20 minutes
in each spot. After 20 minutes the dirt is nice and wet
and it’s time to move the sprinkler. The water gets turned off and the sprinkler
bucket gets moved. This will continue until the entire high tunnel
is watered. Then we repeat the process with the hose bringing
it back into the high tunnel until the next time we need it. The veggies of tomorrow are sown today. It’s never too late to become a gardener. This year think about planting a few of your
favorite crops. You don’t need a high tunnel or 15,000 square
feet of garden space. You just need a small plot of dirt or even
a few pots on your patio. There’s no better time than now to plant
for the future. I’ve been spending lots of time going through
the seed catalogs and I’m hoping to add a few new things to the gardens this year. It’s always fun for me to try new stuff
as I tend to get bored growing the same things every year. I hope that 2019 is the best growing season
I’ve ever had, and I’m going to do the work and planning now to get us off on the
right foot. I know there will be struggles along the way. Summer days are long in daylight but short
in time it sometimes seems and the to do list is always too long. I’m already aching for warmer days and for
more plants to be growing in the basement. We will get there before we know it. Here’s to your best growing season as well! Mike has a new video on Sunday and you can
also follow us on Instagram and Facebook. We’ve been posting tons of content everyday
that just doesn’t always make it into the videos. Until next time I thank you for watching and
joining me as we explore the ranch life and escape the ordinary on Our Wyoming Life.

    Do you find you have less weeding in the high tunnel? Theory would say there should be less weed seeds making it in but there is always the preexisting seed.

    On a side note I'm already planning for a garden this coming year, as long as I can control wildlife.

    Nothing like gardening to keep you humble. Between weeds, insects, molds, irrigating, transplanting and sowing dozens of different crops or varieties something will go wrong.

    That floating row cover, Do you double them up for the winter time? and do you allow the cover to lay on top of the crop or does it need supports?

    How nice is it to have that second high tunnel? Do you wish it were longer yet? It would make for a great chicken pen at the far end

  • Reply John Koopman January 11, 2019 at 1:38 pm

    After dragging all that hose around, I'd be making a suggestion that we install an underground water line to each of the high tunnel gardens. Yes it would be something else to put on the project list but until the kids are grown enough to help out with the hose it would save your back a bit and maybe even give you a few minutes to put together some chocolate chip cookies for the man of the house. – John

    I can not believe ANY type of greenhouse, without auxiliary heat, could generate enough heat to get the temps high enough for seedlings. The water bottle idea is interesting, but again, even if the temperature of those bottles get up to 60 during the day, I find it hard to believe they are not frozen solid by the next morning, rendering them useless.

    Hi Erin I love youe videos so muxh. Thanks for making them. I came acoss this video on a farmer with a submerged greenhouse in Neb. that would be of interest to you since he uses geothermal the heat and cool the greenhouse year round. Watch it all the way thru since one person can put them together and you guys have lots of land. Also he gives a few numbers for Mike to work with. Thanks again.

    Great to see you and watch you show how you to your gardening. I do not have a green thumb I have a tendency to either forget to water and dry out my plant and then feel guilty and over water and drown them. They always end up dying on me.
