Farm Work Day, October 11th, 2008

We could use some help with our new hoop house! We're putting up a small hoop house in an area of the farm that burned completely down (no clearing necesssary). We've discovered that the tiny greenhouse on the hill isn't big enough to keep the flow of flats going that we need for our row crops, so we're adding a cheaper version closer to the fields. Called a "hoop house" it's constructed by bending PVC pipes in an arch, attaching to rebar into the ground and then covering with plastic. It's like a giant tinker-toy project covered with greenhouse plastic. No beauty queens, but they get the job done.

Anyway, it's just been too darn hot to invite subscribers to enjoy our farm, but I would think by October it will have cooled considerably. Adults and teens only, as this is a work day. Bring a picnic lunch, closed toe shoes, sunscreen. For those who have never seen the farm, I'll do a tour at 9:00 and start work right after, breaking for lunch around 12:00ish and wrapping up by 3:00.

Let me know if you'd like to participate: donna@morningsongfarm.com
