Awesome progress! Now if you'd planted seeds to get more plants on 4/28, they'd barely be sprouting by now. Excellent way to double your plants. Here's some food for thought: If one were to take some leggy seedlings, I bet they could easily get 3 plants out of them!

Nice to have rabbit poop. I picked up some stable bedding to use this weekend. It was full of goat nuggets, and horse buns.

We can also grow root vegetables there too, as they're protected from the winds. Thanks.
Where are you moving to? What plant zone? With some protection, you should be able to grow lots of stuff. You might want to research: hay or straw bale gardening, square foot gardening. This book should provide lots of information to help you get started in your new location. He has lots of ideas about creating micro-climates that will be conducive to gardening. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/four-season-harvest-eliot-coleman/1103554962?ean=9781890132279&pcta=n&st=PLA&sid=BNB_DRS_Core+Shopping+Textbooks_00000000&2sid=Google_&sourceId=PLGoP205&k_clickid=3x205
