Spring is officially here in Michigan, and that means home gardeners are doing what they can to ensure a bountiful harvest this summer and fall.
But, there is one addition to the backyard garden operation that can extend the growing season into the winter — the hoop house.
The arched frame of a hoop house has a translucent cover that keeps heat and moisture inside, providing an improved growing environment for the home gardener.
With that added protection and warmth, crops that might normally stop producing food in the fall could produce into December.
In this episode:
- What is a hoop house?
- Extending the growing season for home food growers
- Optimizing your yard for a hoop house
- Controlling the pH level of your soil
