Well that is the project for the weekend.

Not a large one just a a small one over the lettuce bed. Just to get a little jump start on the cool weather crops.

How big and what are you using for material Andi? I'm looking at one in the future and still checking out ideas.

Thanks in advance!

Small 2 x 5 ...

I'm going to recycle some stuff I have on hand. Old tent poles for the hoops and I have some heavy gauge plasic left over from the dove house.

And if I can get an 6 week early start on the lettuce and spinach ...then I will add a larger one (pvc pipe) to extend the harvest. (Warm weather crops)

It will be nice to add 12 weeks to my growing season.

Will see.

You can make your own high or low hoops from lightwall galvanized conduit...

Quick Hoops

...or you could go low-budget and cut tree saplings and bend - lash them together:
