With the sun shining and beautifully calm winds, 10 friends came and helped us put the plastic (skin) on our new 96 foot hoop house. Everything went incredibly well - no surprise - when you have that much positive energy in one place, anything is possible!
While it is too late to get anything planted in the hoop house this year, we hope to see it filled with greens in early March and to keep it going through next winter. A hoop house is a magical thing - with no other heat source than the sun, it allows Vermonters to harvest fresh greens even in the coldest of winter months. It will take us a few years to understand the full power of this season-extension technique, but we are looking forward to learning and growing!
