A New Hoop House for My Tropical Plants

There's always a new project being completed here at my Bedford, New York farm.

Now that it’s autumn, all my tropical plants must be stored indoors and safe from the cold. I use hoop houses designated specifically for these warm weather specimens. The hoop houses are constructed from steel frames and polyethylene panels. This year, it was necessary to build another structure to accommodate my growing collection of plants. I decided the best place was in front of my vegetable garden across the carriage road from one of my existing hoop houses. It was a big project - there were many steps involved to get it built properly, but now it's up and already being put to good use.
