A Little Excitement for a Wednesday Morning
It was a rather windy start to the day.
Most everything stood up fine against the strong gusts, but one small hoop house decided to take flight. Starting out on the southern side of our permanent hoop house, it tumbled up and over and continued down the property, headed due north. Thankfully it got caught in an old tree skeleton, stopping it from continuing into the neighbor’s house.
I snapped this photo after we had removed what was left of the plastic.
As it traveled over the large hoop-house, it left some holes in the roof. Also, it ripped up some raised beds and damaged one of the gooseberry bushes, but we are mostly thankful it didn’t fly across the street into someone’s garage.
The second of the smaller movable hoop-houses was still in place, but was rising off it’s posts, so we made sure to secure it down before it followed after the first one.
In other news, Janice has been working her tail off ordering seeds, drawing maps, and writing out the planting schedules. The last of the seeds are in the mail and some have even been started upstairs under the lights. The winter hiatus is over. Before long, Spring will be upon us and along with it, the rush to get everything in ground.
Until next time,
