No Room in The Greenhouse

So, the greenhouse is full... now what?  As always, Jeremiah had ideas and the skills to execute on those ideas.  The solution?  Mini hoop houses, also referred to as caterpillar houses.  These were specifically designed to be mobile so after after the greenhouse season ends they can be transferred to the fields to facilitate better growth of our "heat seeking" plants like tomatoes, peppers and eggplant.

Site selected (access to electricity and water)
 and weed control layed

Able and willing crew to include:
 Jeremiah, Roger, Dave, and Jason while
Gail takes pictures

We're already at 75% occupancy

Exterior View.  There are 3 hoop houses, each measuring 16 x 4 feet

Farmers like Deke are filling the houses faster than we can build them. 
Life is good all around.
