Our pumpkin patch this morning. That snow is over a foot deep and the consistency of a glacier, having been rained on and frozen. It has been hard on the hoop house I left up over winter for our early state fair pumpkin. It had a lot of leaves in it, and bags of wood mulch around the outside, so hopefully the frost didn't go too deep. Forecast for the next 2 days is highs in the 50's and 1" to 2" of rain, so most of the snow should be gone soon. Just as soon as the snow leaves, the hoops will get new plastic, and the ground around the hoops will get some clear plastic flat on the ground to warm things up. My daughter is teaming with me on this project and we will be growing a 1200 Engel here.
