Another Case for Season Extension.

So, we have seen the edge of the really cold air from Wyo. slide through (how can I send it back?) and the two MesoWest stations nearby are in the single digits just before noon. House thermometers say 12úF. Yet as I type the temp inside the low tunnel is 73úF and the vent has been open for ~ 1/2 hour at least:

Inside I have young greens, radishes and cabbage. I expect to harvest just as I'm planting out spring greens. The array of materials available to extend the season is amazing, and with the abundant sunshine in the Intermountain West, the opportunities abound.
