It's been a few weeks since I peeked under my hoops and Reemay to check on my own local produce--the spinach, chard, beets, cilantro, and arugula in our garden. As I expected, it is growing slowly. Some if might not be harvested until next spring. Still, it is a thrill to see it growing so well under its cover.
The Reemay allows sunlight and water through, while protecting the plants from wind and some of the cold. The spinach, chard, and beets are doing well under there, with no additional watering or other care.
