November 26, 2000

Ron McMullin works as a Product Development Officer for Exact Research and developed what is now called a AGarden Hot House. The melon project was part of a test to see whether the Garden Hot Houses worked B they sure did. In cool climate areas, a Garden Hot House is ideal for growing melons, cucumbers, tomatoes, and peppers, and for starting corn. The hot houses have a five-foot black mulch sheet with a specific planting pattern adjustable for the various crops. A metal frame holds a clear plastic cover off the plants. A 12-foot plastic tube, filled with water by the user, works like a solar heater keeping temperatures up into the evening. The kit also includes a balanced fertilizer and an instruction booklet.
Ron has been an Irrigation Specialist and Soil and Water Specialist with the Province of Alberta, and the Technology Transfer Officer for Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's Lethbridge Research Centre. He holds an M.Sc. in Soil Science from the University of Alberta.
