Dear Growers, etc.
I am interested in examples of people using high tunnels, row covers,
shade cloth, misters, sprinkler irrigation, or other tricks to cool
things down enough to produce lettuce, spinach and other cool season
leafy green vegetables in the heat of the summer.
I have to give a talk at an upcoming conference and wanted to have
some practical examples from growers, in addition to the experiences
that some local collaborators and I have had growing leafy greens in
the summer in high tunnels using shade cloth and sprinkler irrigation
in Kansas and Missouri.
Thanks for any information, stories, pictures, etc. you might
