It has been cold. We got visual confirmation when we opened the bedroom curtains this morning. Moisture had condensed on the plastic we installed over the windows to cut the cold drafts. We have covered the windows for three years now and this is the first time moisture formed.
Right now we have some welcome sun and last night's snow did not come up to forecast levels. For which we are very thankful. Now we await the next system.
Here is a little post that falls into the intriguing category. Alexis Madrigal at The Lost History of American Clean Tech writes about intensive solar agriculture. Reading it also brought back memories of the time I lived in Colorado and used 'walls of water' to start my tomatoes and peppers really early; like, February early. For those who don't remember or have never seen them (I haven't seen them in a very long time) the 'wall of water' was a tube of heavy plastic made up of smaller tubes around the circumference which were filled with water. The filled wall was placed around the seedling and warmed the ground around it keeping it from freezing. It worked beautifully.
Well, that is enough for a lazy Sunday. Keep warm and safe.
