How many square meters can you cover with 3000 tomatoes in 9x9cm pots? and 10000 flowers in 8x8cm pots? If you have 108m2 greenhouse only - is it enough?
And how many plants you can load into old ford transit if you are going to market. Whatkind of plants you need to take and which plants must stay at home. Customer needs?
How to grow tomatoes so that they can be sold within a week if they are 15cm tall right now?
They must look fat and ca 30cm tall for market. Is it possible?
How many plants you can water,pot or... per hour?
How to protect your plants outside if hail is coming? (greenhouse is full)
And more and more questions every day.....

Its already May, but we have every nightd cold temp. outside.
First farmers market was 1.May, but it was more promotional happening than market. Try to sell plants and flowers if you are sitting in the middle of snow :S
And because I haven't got any help from people over the world, our new greenhouse is in same condition  as it was two months ago. Sometimes miracles do happen, but it looks like not with me.

Weather forecast said that today night we have -5C, so I had to prepare.
And it is definately not last cold night - until end of May we have frosts here. 
By the way... Please share my blog on facebook, even if you don't care about gardening-Maybe someone likes it!

I can't afford a greenhouse, so I built this.

-5C or more is coming

Today it was -2C outside and tomorrow will be -5C, Spring? Well... Usually after cold spring a cold summer is coming. Maybe I must buy a lottery ticket and then ...Tenerife is waiting!
Just kidding. I don't have money even for my greenhouse, so no Tenerife or similar. Never.
We have never been in a warm country, such like Egypt, Spain... But at least I can read about it from internet or books.
