Hear how to grow higher quality salad greens and microgreens in a season-extending high tunnel.
- Paul and Alison Wiediger operate Au Naturel Farm in Smiths Grove, Ky., and grow a wide array of vegetables from May through October, many types of leaf lettuces and gourmet salad greens from October through June, and raise free-range eggs all year.
- Sara Hanson, of Prairie Sky Farm, is a beginning farmer near Wesley, Iowa. She recently installed a high tunnel and started growing produce for local grocers and wholesale markets in her north-central Iowa community.
