Moving the Mobile High Tunnel

Ken spent part of Saturday getting ready to move the mobile high tunnel to its summer location.  As the temperature rises, the greens no longer need protection and will do better in the cooler air out side!  The more carefully Ken prepares, the easier the move goes.  He pulls weeds along the track, pounds down t posts, and finally takes up all the clips and anchors.  Then he calls me and I head down.

We had a slow spot when one of the eighteen wheels came off the track.  Once righted it was smooth rolling to the new spot.

Then Ken has to reinstall all the anchoring clips, posts, etc.

Now we are putting fiber on the greens on cool nights and Ken has the mobile high tunnel closed up so the soil warms up for the heat loving crops that he will transplant soon
