Lovely plants! Did you sow all of them on your own? I wish I had that much space! :^)

Wow! I saw the Pro-Mix BX bag. Is that what they are all growing in? Do you add anything else? And what are you feeding them????

Awesome! Hey, what are those orange things hanging from the greenhouse? They dont look like poles and too thick for rope and support.

Also, growing in a bag, now that's using the brain. lol 1st time I heard of that.

To continue on Shellva's comment "BX w/ Microrise" are you see any benefit of the bacteria? Are you trying some new marketing strategy by growing directly in the bags?

Nice high tunnel. Looks like a vented heater tucked in one corner. Do you circulate air within the structure?

Wow, your plants look incredibly healthy. Do you sell them all? Or keep the larger ones for your own production?

Yes, all pro-mix BX 2.8 loose fill and 3.8 bales.

In 100 gallons of water, 1/2 lb 4-18-38, 1/4 lb soultion grade calcium nitrate, 1/4 lb mag sulfate (epsom salts).

be sure to adjust pH to 6.4

That is poly bailing twine for hay bailers. They are tied to #9 galv. wire that is attached at the endwalls and up to every hoop.

Yes, the plants in the bag are growing as good as the plants in the large pots. I just made some slits in the bottom for drainage.

Yes, it's actually an inoculant for the bacteria. Very noticable difference growing lizianthus.

No new marketing strategy, just trying to save a step.

Yes, a #2 oil hot air furnace. I re-wired it to by-pass the limit switch. This way the circulation fan in the heater is running all the time when I have the switch "on".
During the day the sides are rolled up so there is plenty of air moving.
