Preparing My Hoop Houses for Winter

As you know, I am a very serious gardener, and am always thinking about new ways I can improve the productivity of the gardens and the greenhouses at my farm.

My outdoor grounds continues to prepare all the hoop houses for winter storage of my warm weather plants, including citrus trees and a vast array of other tropical specimens. Because I live in a four-season region, it’s vital these plants move indoors, where the temperature and humidity levels can be controlled. This year, to maximize the space inside these high-grade structures, my strong crew is installing more shelving for potted plants - all from wood milled right here. With the first frost expected in this area within weeks, everyone is working hard to get the projects done.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
