It took us all weekend to finish the hoop house.
we figured, a couple hours tops, then we could get some other stuff done on saturday, and then we would have sunday for other things, but nope, all day saturday and almost all day sunday.
We used an old storm window and put it in upside down so we can lower the top to let in ventilation and too much heat out.
This is the west end.
Here is the east end with the door
The door is an old 5′ screen window frame, it still has the metal screening in it, so that supports the plastic.
All the rest of the garden you are looking at is done and gone for the year except the swiss chard in the right side of the photo behind the dead marigolds. Haven’t covered it, but it must be tough stuff, as it hasn’t froze yet.
Here is a look inside the Hoop House, you can see all the tomatoes on the plants just inside the door, the rest of the plants look very similar, I just hope they all start to ripen finally.
It will be interesting to see if we are still picking fresh tomatoes by thanksgiving, just depends on the temps and the weather.
now back to Tatting, I hope, I need to finish the Lace Mat and start the Christmas Tatting.
