Hoop House!

Spring is here and the first thing to grow in our garden is our new hoophouse! Thank you to our HelpXers Marion and Roosa from France and Finland and to John from North Tetagouche! It only took us 3 hours (with a leisurely lunch break) to put up. The hoop house measures 100 X 17 feet and will allow us to grow food earlier and later in the season. In the next couple weeks we will be preparing the soil and planting things like peas, spinach, and kale – things that don’t mind the cold.

Here’s a snapshot of how it went up:
