Short’s Produce Gardens
Commiskey, Summer 2003
|Larry Short offers his “baby mizuna” greens in a Hoosier Fresh bag.||Plastic mulch warms the soil and eliminates weeds in the row.|
|The hoophouse supplied by the project was constructed next to a wood frame structure.||This small hoophouse can be both heated and cooled using readily available equipment.|
|Both the mizuna in front and the arugula to the rear ready for harvest.||Arugula and beets are grown in adjacent pure stands in raised boxes.|
|Larry tells Jules, Dave, and Bud how his daughter and grandkids help with the gardens.||Wading pools of potting soil blocked up on cattle gates make easy harvesting.|
A variety of greens and lettuce make up this mesclun mix.
