2011-OCT -> Hoop House Back in Production

We have finally fully restored our Hoop House that collapsed in the January 2010 snow/ice storm (see “Mother Natures Bats Last”).

IMG_3867_revThe double-wall, plastic sheeting was restored and the somewhat weeded plant beds cleaned as we broad-forked the soil.

We have planted basil, tomatoes, garlic, shallots and a permanent assortment of herbs and figs.

IMG_3868_revWooden supports will be added to the center of the spans to strengthen the newly welded assemblies. Hopefully, we can avert another catastrophe like this, but then again always remember that “mother nature bats last”!
