This was Sunday Dinner in the Castagno Home.
We have seen great success this season from the Grow it Now! Plant Protector users. Overall, this plant protector has allowed its users to plant earlier and harvest sooner. Areas that are lucky to get one planting in are now able to get two plantings in. We are coming into the fall where we desprately need to extend our growing season into the fall. Don't put your Grow it Now! Plant Protector away for the season yet. Pull it back out to provide protection against the fall frosts. Allowing you to extend your season another month or two.
Since our last post on June 13, 2011, we have harvested 16 large brocolli and 12 large cauliflower. Below are pictures taken in the last week.

It's Harvest Time!!! Below are pictures of the Garden taken the morning of June 13, 2011.
Look at the size of those plants. There are 4 rows of plants. We are staggaring planting times so we can harvest all summer.
These are our two test plants planted on March 19, 2011.
Look at the size of that Brocolli.

Here is our row of tomatoes. We planted these on May 7, 2011
The tomato plants are doing great! The Grow it Now! Plant Protectors are the most superior plant protection system in its class. Protecting plants against more of the elements when they need the protection the most.
Here are some pictures taken the morning of June 3rd. The first picture is of my neighbors garden planted on May 21, 2011. This is a good representation of the plant size of most gardens in the area. Notice the brocolli on our garden. We should be harvesting it in the next couple of weeks.
This is my neighbors garden. They planted 2 rows of brocolli on May 21, 2011. Picture taken June 3, 2011.
From Right to Left this garden was planted between April 1, 2011 and May 8, 2011. That is unheard of for Southeast Idaho.
These are the two famous plants that were planted on March 19, 2011.
They have run the gauntlet and are succeeding nicely with the help of
the Grow it Now! Plant Protectors. These plants have been through over 5
snowstorms, temperatures of less than 15 degrees and high winds gusts
of over 55 MPH.
It is May 20, 2011. People in our area are just getting their Wall o Waters out and planting their gardens. Our garden looks very healthy and hearty most of it planted 2 months ago. We planted our tomatoes, tomatillos and peppers 2 weeks ago on May 8, 2011. Enjoy the pictures...

A bunch of questions have been posed to us regarding the last snow. Primarily, "how are the plants doing now?" We decided to answer this by showing you the pictures. The ultimate test on our product protects against the snow is to show you how the plant looks 1 week later or 2 weeks later. Here are some pictures taken this morning.
What you will notice in this picture is that this plant has outgrown the regular sized plant protector. The large plant protector has been used to provide a larger growing area for the plant, this is important because we are not passed the avg. last frost date, and the plant still needs protection. We have found that by starting your plants in the regular sized plant protector you are giving the plant more protection early on. The fragile starter plants do not need a lot of area to begin growing. They can graduate to the larger protector when they start to outgrow the smaller one.
This is the earliest plant we put in the ground. This plant was put in the ground on March 19, 2011. Since then we have received 5 snows, plenty of wind and cold weather temperatures. This is what you can acheive using the Grow it Now! Plant Protection System.
Look at the picture at the very bottom of this page it is of the same plant. This is the result 1 1/2 months later, after five snows, temperatures spiking down to the teens, terrible wind, heavy rain, and a plant protector that can withstand the elements. If you want to see phenomenal results but live in an area that has a short growing season, put the Grow it Now! Plant Protectors to the test. See if it can't extend your growing season!
Another Snow in Rexburg
The plants are doing fine amidst the snow.
Another plant under the snow. The Grow it Now! Plant Protector offers the best plant protection on the market. It protects against more elements including: heavy wind, light snow, and cold weather temperatures. It also promotes hearty growth of the plants.
We went out and took some pictures of Leo's Garden today. The plants are hearty and healthy. This picture is of the same plant we took a picture of on April 8, 2011 with 1 inch of snow on top of the cover.
Here are some pictures of the Snow we received here in Rexburg on April 8, 2011. You can see that the plants are still healthy and doing fine amid the unpredictable Rexburg weather.
Here is a picture of the plant and how well it is holding up in the snow.
The Grow it Now! Plant Protection System is superior to all other products on the market, it has an easy open/close top that keeps snow from reaching the inside. It promotes hearty and healthy plant growth and when the system is removed the plants do not go limp, they are very hearty and ready to withstand the elements. This system allows the user to plant up to 1 month before the last predictable frost.
On March 5, 2011, Jenna Saunders from Provo, Utah planted her cole crops under the Grow it Now! Plant Cover. Here are pictures of her crops taken on April 1, 2011.
Leo started his cole crops, cabbages, broccoli, and cauliflower in early February under some lights in his house. From experience he has found that the cole crops are a lot heartier to the colder temperatures. So he strives to get his crops in as early as possible. One advantage to this is being able to harvest earlier avoiding the many pests like moths and insects that cause problems with the vegetables later on. As soon as the snow melted off of his garden Leo planted one cabbage and one cauliflower, the date was March 19, 2011.
He watered them good and covered them with the Grow it Now! Plant Covers. Since then Rexburg has experienced 2 inches of snow, rain, below freezing temperatures and plenty of wind. Leo checked on his plants every day and they have done extremely well. So on March 31, 2011 Leo planted 21 more plants including: Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower and Brussel Sprouts. Today April 1, 2011 the temperature is 61 degrees sunny, and these are the pictures we took.
