My Tropical Hoop House Gets a New Cover

Cold weather preparations are in full swing in my greenhouses.

Now that it’s autumn, my outdoor grounds crew is busy preparing the greenhouses for all the tropical plants that need to be stored indoors for the winter. Most of them are kept in one of three hoop houses designated specifically for these warm weather specimens. The hoop houses are constructed from steel frames and Polyethylene panels. While they are extremely durable and long lasting, it was time to replace the existing cover and curtains on the structure located next to my hay barn and across from my vegetable garden. My crew took on the tedious task this week. 

Here are some photos - enjoy.
