Short Description:
Increased awareness of natural disasters and security issues, concerns about food safety, and the desire to eat healthy, local foods has created an interest in growing more food in gardens and in greenhouses, hoop houses and other season extenders. This publication offers ideas and suggestions for extending the "shoulder" growing season in these structures in order to start plants earlier in the spring and allow them to grow longer in the fall. Included is a brief list of ways to curb energy costs during shoulder seasons and suggestions for future research and educational efforts.
