This is the new big hoophouse half built, on a cold day in may.

Here it is the day we (myself, Cody, Kayla, and Colin) finished putting the plastic on it.

It was finally planted with 150 tomatoes, 80 sweet peppers, and 50 zucchini on May 17. I will keep the floating row cover, or frostcloth on the plants through most of June. The second week of June there was frost almost every night. The rowcover keeps the plants about 5 degrees warmer and much happier.
