One of the most frustrating days of my life. Woke up this morning. I thought it was going to be a normal day. Mother Nature starting cooking up some nasty winds. Thatís when I knew a really bad day was coming. I had to rebuilt my greenhouses into small hoop houses. I will admit. Those would be freakin awesome if they worked, nice and tall and big so the plants have a ton of room to grow in. Not anymore. You canít build those out of PVC! YOU JUST CANT!! So I took those apart, I was ferrous. Sooooo freakin frustrated! Throwing shit around. So I spent the day building small hoops out of the PVC I could save. Plastic is a bit flimsy. I tried my best to get it as tight as possible but it was hard, plants should do fine in those, just need to get the ends in and I am all good. Spending three days building those big ones was disappointing now that I had to take them down. Oh well. At least I have something.
