After writing last Friday’s post about the simple homemade PVC hoop house and talking about how it can weather snow storms, lo and behold we had the heaviest snow storm we’ve had in years over the weekend. We set records on Sunday with over 12” of snowfall in some areas. I thought I would share a few pictures of the hoop house from Sunday and Monday. It held up great with the lettuce beds safely inside.
In the midst of the blizzard on Sunday, the hoop house was holding strong although covered and weighed down with the heavy snow.
Being concerned the snow may get too heavy, I cleaned the hoop house off a couple times during the storm. I then cleaned it off again on Monday after the storm was over and it was in great shape.
Inside, the lettuce beds were safe and even more of the lettuce seeds had germinated. Way to go hoop house!
Do you have any hoop house snow storm stories?
