Hoop House Production

We picked our first few tomatoes this week out of our hoop house. A Hoop House is like a greenhouse in structure but lacks an outside heating source. It relies on the heat from the sun.  A hoop house can extend our season about a month on each side and it makes it possible to grow a handful of things almost year round including heavy greens, kales and spinach. In a sustainable farming system in the Midwest we need to increase our winter production- Hoop Houses are one of the solutions.
