Winter growing can be tough. From unforeseen cold snaps which damage plants, to aphids wreaking havoc, it’s not a forgiving growing environment. Then if you manage to get a nice crop grown and ready to harvest, you have voles to deal with, and downy mildew starts destroying your lettuce. Other questions lurk… If you are building a new tunnel, what features do you add? What’s worth the money?
The winter season should be easy and slow paced. You shouldn’t have to be working long days weeding chickweed from your paths, shoveling your tunnels out and fighting those pesky voles for your super sweet spinach. You need a winter growing system that puts you back in control of your time, allowing you to rest and recuperate from the crazy summer growing season.
When I started winter farming back in 2005 at Kilpatrick Family Farm, we had all these problems and more. I remember plowing out greenhouses at midnight because we hadn’t constructed them properly. I remember losing whole crops to disease, insects, or those voles… And yes, I weeded my share of chickweed (and tomato volunteers) from the beds.
I knew there had to be a better way, so I embarked on a cross-country study of winter production farms, talking to dozens of growers, asking about their techniques, varieties, and styles. We talked to greenhouse manufacturers, extension agents, seed breeders. We refined our system to make it work for us, providing a stream of winter growing profits that allowed us to sleep well at night.
I also shared our system with hundreds of growers across the US, talking at dozens of conferences, giving webinars, and getting lots of feedback. I fielded hundreds of questions too. Over time, I realized the questions started following patterns, so I began compiling a FAQ.
Last winter, I sat down and decided to turn that FAQ into a 60 page ebook, covering the top questions I get on winter growing and season extension. It’s jam packed with information that will save you time, make you money, and help you grow a crop you can stand back and be proud of. It will help you know what parameters to run your greenhouse at so you can sleep well at night, knowing that your crops are tucked in and safe for your customers.
Already, the few growers that I have shared it with are giving positive feedback. “A great little book, I enjoyed it” from a grower in Vermont. A grower in NY said “I can see a lot of work went into this, very helpful information”
