Our new DIY: Hoop House

Our new DIY: Hoop House

Well last year we didn’t have a big garden as we were new to the growing seasons here and didn’t expect to lose our hot peppers and tomato plants to a freak frost in June! Twice! Needless to say we were disheartened but so was everyone in this little town! This year we want to have a lot of tomatoes so Morgyn and I built a new hoop house here! It is bigger than our last one in Abbotsford, and we are excited for our tomato sprouts to get big so we can house them in our greenhouse! Here are the pictures of the building of our new Hoop House 2017.. First Morgyn had to set up the structure, we reused some of the same materials we had from our last Hoop House in Abbotsford.. It’s Me! Infront of where our Hoop House will be we made rows of well composted soil for whatever vegetable crops we want to have this year! Maybe squashes? We had a couple of big pumpkins a few years back, It will be nice to grow some more! Maybe strawberries too? Yum! Here is our first hoop erected! We are getting there! 🙂 My first cooking lesson started that day! Cheers! With Morgyn’s help I made some really great Quesadillas! Yay! Little Darwin, they are so happy that the snow is all gone! We had a bit of a scare last week though as Humble Dog came home with a few wood ticks on her! One had really effected her badly, she was a little weak for a few days, but all better now!...
Moving our Greenhouse

Moving our Greenhouse

We moved our Greenhouse to the Cariboo now! It was a bit of a challenge moving the plants but we covered our trailer and tied down the plywood to the top of the trailer. It worked super well, and we brought the rest in the back of our truck! A few truck loads later all our peppers, tomatoes and flowers were up here!   Pepper flower forming on one of our #peppers! Starting to pack up the #greenhouse! Some of our #tomatoes and #peppers   Some of our #flowers                   Our #tomatoes! One of our Tomatillos! This one is a purple Tomatillo 🙂   Ready to pack them all up!   More #peppers Such beautiful plants! Datura and Amaranths A #pepper starting to form! Lots of #pepper flowers on these ones! Greenhouse load one ready! Here they have giant moths! Also giant mosquitos..we call them tiger mosquitos since they are so big and really take a chunk out of your arms! Squishy cat napping.. After putting the #peppers on the deck. We will eventually have a new greenhouse but until then they will be here.. Tomato plants and Darwin! Weather has been great here! Our plants are loving it! Some of our herbs! More #tomatoes! Lemon Balm 🙂 It tastes just like...
