New (used) High Tunnel

July 6th, 2014

This summer our neighbors, Dee & Dean, upgraded to a deluxe High Tunnel. We jumped in to help of course and when were were done, they gave us their old High Tunnel! How sweet is that?!

We decided to not do the “Bread Wrapper” style of attaching the plastic common in basic HT designs. After working on their new deluxe package we really liked the Wiggle Wire approach. This also allowed for finished ends and a door. Very formal don’t you think?

We had a 1000 lbs surprise when preparing the area. An old foundation that had to be removed and filled in. Of course there are more rocks than dirt in many areas around here and we spent several days digging and tilling and digging some more.

It took about a month at a putter pace to complete.
