The Hoop House
Currently, two of our tomato beds are growing inside the hoop house. We will be able to compare the success of these tomatoes with two other beds growing in the open. We hope that the hoop house will help protect the plants from the dreaded tomato blight and keep them at their preferred warmer growing temperature. We will install a thermometer to help us manage the temperature inside the hoop house. Following the tomato growing season, we will plant the beds inside the hoop house with a fall crop of greens, extending our growing season.
