I'm impressed with Johnny's solar mulch

Slimy_Okra(2b)June 16, 2012

I just put it on 6 days ago in preparation for planting okra. Here's some soil temps. I measured at the 6" depth this evening.

Outdoors: 60 F

Inside my high tunnel (row cover and plastic): 66 F

Inside my high tunnel in a bed covered with solar mulch: 73 F

The funny thing is, we haven't seen much of the sun for days now...rain, rain and more rain in the forecast.

They have a lot of good products I want to try.

But since they don't post their Canada shipping rates I have never actually ordered from them.

Shipping for me (Saskatchewan) has varied from $50 to $150, depending on the item sizes. If you can make up a shopping list to purchase everything at one go, it might be economical for you. I usually go with USPS Priority Mail.
