Hazel helping Kevin install some of the wood framing on the new hoophouse. As you can see, in the background, after the initial installation of the steel pipe framing, Kevin was able to prep all the beds for planting and we had everything seeded/transplanted in there by mid September. Kevin did the initial plastic (called the “skin”) instillation yesterday and he’s waiting for a sunny day to warm up the plastic so it can be stretched tight to the frame. It also looks like this will be the last week for tomatoes & peppers out of our first hoophouse so we’ll be removing those plants over the coming week and planting more winter crops. We’re still experimenting to see how late some of these crops can go in but learning to rely on quick maturing crops, especially baby leaf crops that are particularly freeze tolerant (baby kale, baby lettuce, spinach, etc).
This Friday (Oct 13th) we’ll be at the final Stockholm Farmers Market of the season in front of Antique Future on Hwy 35 from 3-7PM. Hope to see you there!
