March 28, 2013

Planted my Cabbage, Cauliflower and Broccoli today under the Grow it Now! Plant Protectors. I planted on March 10, 2012 last year. We experienced a much colder and longer winter this year, I checked every day to see when my ground would be dry enough to plant. I was finally able to get in the garden with the tiller this evening. You will see a couple of the pictures have a Large Protector over the top of a smaller protector. Based on my testing last year, I was able to stimulate plant growth by putting the two sizes of protectors over one plant. The extra protector provided added heat and increased protection against the low night time temperatures. I especially saw this enhanced growth on my tomatoes and peppers.

Harvesting Tomatoes, Red, Yellow and Black Bell Peppers and Jalapenos

We started harvesting our Peppers the end of June. We started harvesting our tomatoes the middle of July. Our Tomatoes and Peppers were planted April 28, 2012 under the Grow it Now! Plant Protectors. I left the plant protectors closed and over my smaller peppers up until last week. The growth was amazing, the 95 degree temperatures didn't hurt the plant but instead we saw an increase in growth, they required about 2 times as much water.

These are my tomatoes that were planted the last week in April under the Grow it Now! Plant Protectors. They are making exceptional strides in growth.

How to plant tomatoes in cold climates

This is a picture of my garden. You can see everything is full and green. The temperatures have been in the upper 90s this last week and I have kept the Plant Protectors over the plats through the heat. I have see incredible growth in my smaller plants that still fit under the Plant Protectors. When it is this hot the plants will not get cooked. Just make sure you water heavily because the plants are going to need it with the added heat.

I started my watermelon a little late, however, I put the plant protectors over the seeds and it has greatly helped with Germination.

June 5, 2012

I am continuing to reap the harvest from my Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli and lettuce. I am just starting to harvest my radishes and onions. As you can see from the pictures my Tomatoes and Peppers are doing very well. 5 of my pepper plants have good sized peppers and my tomatoes are just starting to bear fruit. We had temperatures up to 91 degrees yesterday and I decided to leave the tops closed to see what would happen. My plants showed significant growth inside the Grow it Now! Plant Protectors and the temperature inside was well over 110 degrees. My plants did not show any signs of being too hot. I just made sure they had plenty of water.

Harvesting Cabbage Cauliflower and Broccoli before the bugs

Here is a picture of part of my harvest from today. My cabbage, cauliflower and brocolli are doing better than I could imagine. Since the bugs haven't started coming out in full force yet, I have been able to harvest a lot of off shoots from my brocolli plants.

How to use Grow it Now! Plant Protectors on Larger Plants?

Here I put my tomato cage over my plant and then I connected 2 large protectors together and put them around my plant and cage. The wind is still horrendous even though the weather is warming up. The wind protection is mainly what I am using this for however, the added heat is also helping these plants grow significantly.

I continue to harvest Cabbage, Cauliflower and Broccoli. My Brussels Sprouts are coming along very nicely it will be a little while until I am harvesting them.
My tomatoes and peppers are definitely the highlight for this post. They were planted between April 20 and April 28, 2012. On the Morning of May 6, 2012 the temperature dropped down to 26 degrees. We observed a temperature high of 55 degrees the day before and 59 degrees on that day. My plants showed no sign of damage and have thrived under the Grow it Now! Plant Protectors. We had three days where the wind gusts reached a high of 50 MPH. I didn’t lose 1 plant protector and none of my plants were harmed with wind whip.

How to make a large greenhouse.

We are expecting some frost over the next couple of days. I have devised a way to put a top on the plant protectors when I hook two together. Here I have taken two small plant protectors and attached them together. I placed them over top interweaving them with the top flaps to secure it into place. This will keep it from blowing away. Then I connected the two end flaps to close off the top. This large protector will allow me to leave my tomato plant in the greenhouse environment for another 2 weeks.
