Moving the Mobile High Tunnel

Ken has been watching the weather  - he wanted to see a consistent warming trend before he moved the mobile high tunnel off the current greens to let them stay cool and to warm the soil for the summer heat loving crops like tomatoes and peppers.

We got some very warm temperatures and we wondered if we could vent the tunnel enough so the greens did not overheat and bolt - go to seed.  Ken asked some friends if they could help.  Early on Tuesday they came over and helped

Ken spent Monday getting ready, and after our helpers left Tuesday Ken anchored the mobile down and closed it up so the soil could warm up.

Then I helped him get up some fencing around the greens now outside the tunnel.  And the light rain was great for the greens
