Subject: Wind protection

My site is perfect: sunny slope facing south west, but it has tons of wind. I have three terraces, the one that is most exposed has three beds (Approx 20' x 2'). I'd like to build a semi permanent structure that would run the length of the bed.

If I do PVC or electrical conduit and plan to cover 2 beds on both windward sides, creating an L shape, should I cover it w/ Agrabon or clear plastic? It may not have any "roof".

Any other ideas? I had great success w/ a mini hoop row in the terrace above which is a little more protected and got great eggplant and peppers. The lower terrace had staked cucumbers and squash that looked sad even in early in the season.

you might want to try setting a 4x4 post in concrete at either end, as if you were building a fence/posts. Either simply 1) tie rope from top to top of each post, and midway from post to post and 18' up from the bottom. …or 2) run PVC in the same fashion and fasten to posts with 'U' clips. Then hang the green tight woven mesh that is used to filter the sun in green houses. U might even be able to get it at OSH. You could also use carpenter clips that you can buy at Home Depo on sale for $1 each to fasten the mesh to the rope or PVC. This way you can take down for the winter. IF…you want, you could also use the 4x4's to hold green house plastic late in the year and protect your plants from frost…but be sure as to round off all the corners of the top of the post to remove all the sharp edges as they would eventually rip the plastic with the wind. IF you made the posts high than 6-8ft tall, you

>>> Subject: Understanding Nitrogen in Organic Tomato Production

Margaret Lloyd | University of California Cooperative Extension | Woodland, CA

Dear Farmers, knowing whether the plants have enough nitrogen at each growth stage can be very challenging because multiple amendments are often added to grow organic, fresh market tomatoes, such as compost + sea bird guano + liquid fertilizers. A small research team at the University of California are undertaking a study to demystify this information. Through this research, we will determine the nitrogen demand in tomatoes and how much nitrogen is made available by each amendment, for each week over the

Subject: Ground Rules

All: Please note the Ground Rules below when posting (they’re also found on the Conversations page). Any blatant promotions will be deleted and, going forward, your account will be canceled.

We’re currently designing a new Marketplace where all you folks wanting to promote yourselves can happily do so there.

In the meantime, PLEASE observe the simple Ground Rules:

  • Speak your mind! Just make sure it applies to our community of production farmers….in California.
  • Chime in! Don't be shy. Everyone benefits from more sharing.
  • Invite other opinions. There's more than one way of doing things.
  • There's no such thing as a dumb question. Someone is probably wondering the same thing.
  • Keep on topic. Remember, no pushing your products or services except in Classifieds or the Source Directory.
  • If you see something inappropriate or not for production farmers, speak up or contact us.

Thank you!
