Build this raised hoop house with hinged top before fall and grow your veggies for much longer.As weather cools, many smart kitchen gardeners look for ways to stretch growing season and hope for more salads and extra kale harvest or any fresh green vegetables for Thanksgiving.
The concept of extended season is to gain a month longer for growing crops at the end of short season. It can be a great home experiment for many. A hoop house can be either attached to the raised bed or in-ground. It can be a manageable way to try this. In fact, it can offer you more benefits, especially to your garden.
Think of the hoop house as a mini greenhouse that is lightweight and has no glass. A heavier plastic sheet draped over plastic pipe or wire arches makes a hoop house that holds in heat, limits weather damage, keeps soil warmer for a long period of time, easy to take off and on for storing, and helps hold in the moisture.
