Medical Mission Continued from pg. 1C important," Meza said. Meza also referenced a May 2016 Seton Hays Medical Health assessment that pinpointed three particular health needs in Hays County. According to the assessment, diabetes, mental health and resources for Alzheimer's and Dementia were identified as the top three health concerns for Hays County residents. Meza said he couldn't speak to the future of holding similar medical events offering free services to the community more often than once a year. "This is what we are here for," Meza said.

I have even made inexpensive cold frames out of PVC, bent over a frame and covered in plastic for winter, shade cloth for summer. The internet is full of plans for greenhouses from the very basic to the most elaborate. An unused shed can even be converted by replac- ing the metal roof with fiberglass. One reason that every gardener should have a greenhouse is that you are able to save money by growing your own plant starts. Control- ling your environment allows you to turn a few dollars worth of seeds into a beautiful vegetable garden or bed of flower- ing annuals. Many seeds need light to germinate and even those that don't can stretch immediately if they don't have enough light right out of the shoot. Too much sun, on the other hand, can burn the tender seedlings, especially in the summer time. A greenhouse with a shade cloth allows you the perfect environment for seedlings to grow strong and healthy. Cuttings of pass-along plants are also easier to start as many need a good humid environment for their leaves to stay plump until they begin to set roots. A mist system can even be set up that makes rooting cuttings even easier. Getting a jump on spring and fall veggies is another great reason to own a greenhouse. In a greenhouse you can pro- tect your tender vegetable starts from too much heat in the summer (using a shade cloth and fan) and from freezing temps in the winter using a heater and the solar heat from having the greenhouse closed up during the day. Many seeds will not germinate ff it is too cold and so keeping them toasty warm in Janu- ary means early tomato transplants out by late- One reason that every gardener should have a greenhouse is that you are able to save money by growing your own plant starts. February (with protection of course) and a longer, healthier tomato growing season. I also use my green- house as an excuse to col- lect more orchids, cacti and other winter tender plants than I probably don't need. Many orchids need a certain amount of humidity to thrive as well as a little shade. My cacti don't mind the extra humidity and also need a little shade, but they can't tolerate the heavy rain storms that we can get here. So for both, the green- house is the perfect place to showcase them. In winter I also stuff my greenhouse with my citrus trees for cold pro- tection but with sun still available. It keeps them just warm enough that I haven't lost one yet- even when we dropped down into the low teens a few years ago. Lastly, my greenhouse is my 'man cave.' It is some place that I can go and just be. It is quiet and peaceful and I am surrounded by beauty. To me, that is the most important reason that every backyard gardener should own one.
