The High Tunnel Begins

From day one we have said that we wanted to be able to grow in a High Tunnel in order to have better control of our Carolina weather. One day it can be 65 degrees and the next day we may have snow on the ground. High Tunnel Greenhouses are structures that are designed not to be heated but allowing the grower to have an extra 30 days of growing season at the start and at the end of seasons.

Last week we ordered the High Tunnel and it will take about 2 weeks to get here. This year we will build a temporary wall inside and heat part of it to start our seedlings for the 2014 growing season.

In the mean time we have begun to level and square our foundation. Follow along as we continue to “Grow Good Food For Good People”.
