Two Small Greenhouses
The first greenhouse was built almost entirely from recycled materials. The second greenhouse is a hoophouse, a plastic tent-like building built over a simple metal frame.
Interplanting is the process of scattering and mixing plants rather than grouping crops together in rows. This seems to confuse bugs by keeping the scents diluted. A "bird patrol," or birdhouses placed all around the yard, invite birds, which feed on the bugs.
The plastic skin of the greenhouse itself can be covered with an adjustable shade cloth as needed.
