Replacing the broken pipes was a quick and simple job. Unscrew the old ones, screw in the replacements. With a battery powered drill, removing and putting in screws is a snap.
The poly cover on the broken greenhouse had torn in several places due to the jagged pipe ends. Since I needed to recover it, I took this opportunity to try out something different : a greenhouse tarp. Instead of being poly film, it's just what it sounds like --- a finished tarp complete with grommets. I opted for the kind with embedded mesh, hoping it will be able to withstand the winds better. It lets in less light, but since our tropical sun is intense, that may be a benefit. We shall see.
The ground beds needed some TLC. I first removed all the weeds.
Next I added an inch of sheep manure. Then 3 inches of county mulch. After a good watering and allowing it to set overnight, I dragged out the tiller and rototilled it all in. A second watering, then a covering to protect the soil.
In this case I used old sheets in one greenhouse. They will help retain soil moisture until I get it seeded with the hot weather crops (okra, lima beans). In the other two greenhouses I used just county mulch, about 6 inches deep (it will settle to 2"-3"). I'll be transplanting larger seedlings -- tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers, so the mulch won't be a problem like it would be for seeds.
Getting water to the greenhouses is an issue that I haven't fully resolved. Right now I'm storing water in trashcans. I'll use the sump pump & generator to water the greenhouses as needed. To fill those trashcans I need to bring water over from the ag catchment tank, or transport it from the county taps (via a tank in the back of the pickup truck). Not the best solution. Perhaps later this year I'll set up a catchment system beside the greenhouses, but I don't have time for that right now. If the water issue gets to be annoying, it will prompt me to take action sooner than later.
