I am posting a link to a thread from GardenWeb on growing "Hot Weather
Greens" that has a fantastic method described for growing greens that I am
going to try. This thread has continued over several seasons so it is
lengthy, please bear with it and you will see a progression of method from
one grower who is making good money on this. I don't see why this couldn't
work all year round with tunnels used in the cold months and shade in
summer.

Now in my case I will adapt this method somewhat, but read this first and
then I can explain what I would adapt in another post. Oh... please be
patient for me to reply as I am on digest and it seems like discussions pass
me by before I get them ;)
