Farm Update: We have started to build a new hoophouse. This will be similar to the others that we grow heirloom tomatoes and bell peppers in. We have the four corner posts in and square (we hope). The poles are hammered into the ground 30″. This is a rocky area so fingers crossed that we can get the all in where we need them to be. We have a bit to go on the construction, but we squeeze it in when we can. These structures can give us some weather protection for some crops. With our irregular weather these days, we will plan to build more on our farm to secure our growing capabilities and ease our farming minds. The covercrops that have been planted so far are growing quickly.
Thank you for supporting our small farm!
