Ken Kuhne demonstrates how to place a winter cover on a raised bed.
Heating. Big snowfall all around the Santa Fe area last night and today. With the temps dropping to 20, its time to take action for sustaining the frigid onslaught of Winter. The 2 cover system is a given. The Summer cover serves as the insulation layer, and the Winter cover is the waterproof layer. Together, they act like a double-paned window. The heavy-duty 6 mil plastic cover goes OVER the polypropylene Summer cover. If you don’t have a Winter cover, then a tarp or heavy blanket will do. The heat pot and light is a most important second option. Heating the ambient air inside the covers keeps the plants in a more stable environment, rather than the overnight swing from heat to cold. Putting a third layer on top of your plants inside the covers is the third. You can use a piece of row cover- polypropylene, or any other lightweight fabric. Its like getting into bed and pulling up a blanket on yourself, or trying to heat the whole room. The third layering holds the heat against the plants, and they are much less ‘shockey’ waking up to a nice layering on top of them. We have produced a ‘thermal’ cover that is a 2 ply space blanket/black rubberized coat. We tested it for 5 months last Winter, and the height of the result was 84 degrees inside, with 24 degrees outside, and crops of basil bushes, red jalapenoes and sweet green peppers, and tomatoes the size of baseballs!
