I recently moved to a new house and the garage is still clean and organized. Not sure how long it will last, but it's a joy to work on my projects for now. Good luck to you.

I'm going to have to do a LOT of sorting, selling, giving and throwing away here in the next couple of weeks. I am not wanting to, but I will be doing it for the move! Yippee, I won't be coming down Natchez Trace this time. Your area is finely arranged compared to my mess :)

It didn't look to bad... There was still a path through the middle. :)
My work bench is so stacked up now none of the surface is exposed. Gonna attack it soon though but not sure where to put all the crap. :(

Has your "Lab" experiment come to any conclusions yet about growing crops at your location? Anything to pass on to people who might try something similar?

In my personal experience I discovered: 1. I am a much better builder than a farmer. 2. A lot of plants don't like 100+ degree temperatures, especially when the dirt they are planted in gets that hot. 3. When you plant food in the desert, the bugs WILL FIND IT and no natural remedies work very well. That being said...after a 3 year hiatus I am going to try some new plants this spring.

Good luck John clean bill of health now clean greenhouse

John, How about burying the pots or planting directly in the dirt? This should give the root base a better chance against the heat.
I have thought of burying a 5 gallon bucket and putting another 5 gallon bucket inside with holes in the bottom edge to drain excess water and a rope wick from the top bucket into the second to wick up the excess water over time.

Jon P...I am going to put plastic back on the wood framing in the back corner of the greenhouse and install another Pepino swamp cooler to keep the plants humid and happy. I originally put that in the corner back in 2013 to help keep some of my plants warm during the winter months. https://thefieldlab.blogspot.com/2013/01/the-tent.html
