We’re turning our 60+ foot bean tunnel into a hoop house so we can grow tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers in our cooler northern climate (and get them in the ground EARLIER).
With a few basic materials, you can build this DIY Hoop House in your garden to expand your growing season, and give your plants a jump-start this season to grow even MORE food.
For the full step-by-step instructions (including how to build the hoop house frame), visit the blog post here:
