For those who may not know, this is a little glimpse into biodiverse farm life: hoop houses! The Piedmont region of North Carolina enjoys a generally mild autumn and winter, so hoop houses work well for us in Union County. They act as a temporary “green house” of sorts, keeping the warmth under the plastic sheet, keeping the plants protected, and making veggies very happy! The first image is the “hoop” set up, and below is what the “house” looks like when it’s complete.
We think it makes for some mighty tasty winter veggies! Veggies that we hope you are enjoying in your Winter CSA. It’s also another way we work hard to create a sustainable and pesticide free farm for all of us to enjoy!
Eat your veggies!
