I've been a GardenWeb member for a while and mostly have grown roses, perennials, herbs and annuals while dabbling with some vegetables and fruits. I will soon be moving to zone 7a where I plan to do much, much more than dabble especially in the fruit and vegetable categories. I've read where people use hoophouses and other structures to extend their crops well into, and even all the way through, winter.
My question is how much day-length affects these efforts. Do I need to plan on providing supplement light? To narrow it down, I'm going to start with carrots, lettuces and spinach. I think that's all I can handle to begin with!
I look forward to visiting here often and learning as much as possible.
