Greenhouse Lessons

Green houses need to be made keeping two important things in mind, the direction of the sun, and the direction of the wind.  BOTH are important to understand.

Last Friday a strong wind storm hit the Pacific Northwest,  including our farm.  The greenhouses that the farmers put up the week before were blown down in this first test.  Saturday morning found many of the farmers busy putting it back up.

This was an opportunity for the farmers to brainstorm together and improve their green house, making sure that it is strong for the rest of the season!  It was great to see them taking responsibility and pride in their work.
