Hi Mandy…..just a few questions as I’m only getting into greenhouse farming. Your last photo with the tomato plants in the hay bails……are the tomatoes inside pots and are just surrounded by the bails? And if so so why? Would this help for over wintering? Also the white tarp? On the ground…is that just to keep things clean? …thanks

Hi Chad,
The young tomato plants are planted directly into the straw bales after the bales have been kept moist for a while. You can add some soil on top to prevent drying out. I cannot winter over these plants by me as it goes well below zero C…freezing. White or black tarps, landscape fabric and heavy straw mulch are all helpful to keep weeds from growing thro. (I answered this gentleman personally awhile ago…:)
