DIY Hoop Greenhouse in about an Hour

Hoop house I built at dusk on a Friday a few weeks ago.  Great way to get the weekend mojo goin’.  It’s about 4’x8’.  I drilled the horizontal rails and arches where they intersect and zip-tied them together.  With some pretty rudimentary anchors (rocks) the plastic sheeting hasn’t been blown off, even though our tree blew over!  Basil and artichoke in the pots and some beets and parsnip that I haven’t cleared out.  I’ve been keeping our outdoor wireless thermometer inside to keep an eye on the temps.
