Moving a Hoop House

There's never a dull moment here at my Bedford, New York farm - this week, the hoop house, located behind my main greenhouse, is on the move.

I have four hoop houses on the property - all used specifically for storing tropical plants during the cold season. Recently, I decided to relocate the smallest of the group down to a space near two of the others, just up the carriage road from my chicken yard. This would make maintaining the stored plants easier and free up the area outside the greenhouse for displaying pretty potted specimens. In order to do this, the hoop house had to be dismantled, and slowly transported piece by piece, using our trusted Hi-Lo.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
