Replacing the Cover on My Hoop House

Autumn is a busy time for gardeners in cold weather regions - it's a race to get all the tropical plants stored indoors and safe in their greenhouses.

Here at my Bedford, New York farm, I currently have three hoop houses designated specifically for 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 stable barn and across from my vegetable garden. My crew took on the tedious task this week.

Here are some photos, enjoy. And don't forget, starting today you can watch my newest show, "Martha Gardens", now streaming free on The Roku Channel. My first show is about my living maze and how to grow trees from seedlings. You can stream a new episode every month, and get lots of my favorite tips, ideas, and solutions for tending your garden year round.
