    Great idea (wink / wink) Bill on that added shade cloth 🙂

    this greenhouse looks so good too!, I really like the wooden frame and the straw bale was a great idea

    The nasturtiums are cheerful. The whole garden looks yummy. Where did you get those clips for the shade cloth from and what are they called? I must have missed that episode! Great job!

    So don’t you need a predator (bird rodent) barrier on the east side?

    Love the way that piece of shade cloth on the ground mysteriously slinks off on its own… 😂

    Great video, greenhouse looks great! I was wondering if those barrels filled with water will add more heat in the summer to the greenhouse

    You just gave me a great idea. From now on I’ll ask the wife who’s in
    charge of today’s project, then just let her think she’s in charge 😛

    The first order is to take the order.. I think a true gentleman should have no problem with the universal order..
    You two have done good job with pinch of love .

    Plain greek yogurt with a bit of sour cream, a little pepper and garlic powder and then add your flavor. Maybe a little crumbled bleu cheese or feta, or fresh finely chopped dill, maybe a little balsamic drizzle. Anything your taste budd enjoy

    Good 👍 idea

    In what USDA hardiness zone are you? Your land looks similar to ours, but maybe just a bit more arid. We are in 8a and have always struggled with plants dying off during the summer, so we are thinking about building a greenhouse over the winter this year.

    I live in South Texas right on the border to Mexico. The land in your video looks very similar to my 8 acres. I have always wanted to plant small crops. It used to be 20 acres and they used to plant tomatoes many years ago on it. The weather here has been over 100F and very dry weather just kills all plants. This is a neat project.

    Nice move by covering the western side. I’ve seen people go up to 80 percent shade there.

  18. MidlifePrices on December 31, 2020 at 11:08 pm

    Brian was wondering why you left the plastic on the ends. Just curious. Thnks 🙂

    All shaded up and ready for the summer heat! Nice job done you two. Everything is still growing super well inside that greenhouse. I hear ya on picking up some salad dressing to put on those awesome lettuces! Flower was very pretty. Yeah we know who runs the ship over there! LMBO. Stay safe and hope you two have a great weekend!

    That is a very successful garden. It looks great.

    Nice update guys. Yvonne, you have a great looking garden.

  23. roni carbine on December 31, 2020 at 11:17 pm

    Great job, keep up the good work

  24. bandar to72011 on December 31, 2020 at 11:24 pm

    U can use misting system to have more cooling effect
    U can use it mainly at 11 am for 20 minutes then at 4 pm

  25. servant74 on December 31, 2020 at 11:24 pm

    Nice of you to ask who’s in charge, but that wasn’t even needed. Smart men know who’s in charge! … at least around my house <<grin>>..

  26. Jessica Smith on December 31, 2020 at 11:27 pm

    curious what % shadecloth this is? It looks like 30%. How does it fare for your plants?
    I’m in Southern California and am in the process of building a greenhouse that will keep my plants alive in the extreme heat! May-November is often mid 90’s to 100’s

  27. jamesfreddys on December 31, 2020 at 11:31 pm

    I’m not looking forward to the hot Tucson temps yet. That garden looks great and you two work well together.
