There are many different options for the two #endwalls on a #greenhouse – first we must consider our framing material, then our endwall covering, and lastly the requirements of the endwall – think equipment access, ventilation, winter growing, etc. Our traditional #framingoptions are: metal or wood, although in recent years new products have entered the market (poly lumber). For endwall covering material we have: standard polyethylene (greenhouse plastic), woven polyethylene, black/white polyethylene, polycarbonate, and plywood. There are many factors that should help to inform this decision: price point, longevity, durability, production goals, etc. In the #offseason , #Rimol is working to create a series of #endwalldrawings so that we can take the guesswork out of the installation process. As you can see, there is a lot to consider!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #youvegotoptions #wood #metal #steel #poly #polycarbonate #blackout #caterpillartunnel #endwalls #ROI #fixedcost #plywood #wedidnotevendiscuss #doorsorshutters #noreaster #northpoint #eastpoint #frameit #headscratcher #wevegotyoucovered

#caterpillartunnel の足元に敷き詰めた菌床は直後から元気に発酵し続けています。経過良好につき全面決定。 キノコ床暖房、素晴らしい。 #floorheating #mushroomcompost 菌床は少しずつ培養土に混ぜながら #microgreens の仕込みにも活用します。減ってきたらまた菌床を補充し、床暖房→培養土資材→畑とリレーする予定。 敷き詰める量は10m×3mのトンネルならコンパネを立てた軽トラ山盛り2台分ぐらい。

Second hoophouse is in the works! This one is closer to the “farmhouse” (not pictured, that’s our neighbors backyard 🙊) and will be primarily used for starting seeds, potting up, etc. . With that said, be sure to check out our seedling sale this Spring, where proceeds go towards Walk MS! We had a great response last year and I’m hoping this year will be even better! . . #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #farmersfriend #nursery #seedlings #marketgarden #ccrgardens #greenhouse #walkms #teamresnik #GrOwawayMS

Before we tucked ourselves in for the evening, we made sure to tuck our plant babies in! The row cover served as a blanket for our greenhouse & kept the freshly sprouted Fall greens nice & toasty through last night's hard freeze. It's looking like things will warm up a bit over the next week or so, but we always keep the Agribon handy, just in case! 👍 #agribon #rowcover #hardfreeze #greenhouse #cattunnel #caterpillartunnel #fourseasonfarming #farmsmallfarmsmart #familyfarm #grow #eatlocal

Had our first hard freeze last night. Got the caterpillar tunnels up just in time! Used a great, simple tutorial from MIGardener's YouTube channel, cost me less than $30 each :)

Chilly weather prep + trace mineral dose, all in one! Zach is spraying the caterpillar tunnel with seaweed extract from @neptunesharvest. Seaweed extract is an organic & natural fertilizer that also acts as a frost protectant. How are you preparing your crops for the chill? 🌱👍 #farmsmallfarmsmart #smallfarmsforbigchange #familyfarm #seaweedextract #beyondorganic #overwintering #fourseasonfarming #traceminerals #organicfertilizer #greenhouse #caterpillartunnel #YoungAmericanFarmers

30x72 with a big door, insect screened sides, and peak fan...Beneficial wasps will be used for organic pest control in this tunnel, which is the primary reason for the insect netting on the sides. When the wasps are released the big door will remain shut, or will also be screened off until all harmful pest insects have been taken care of #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #ohiofarm #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #nrcs #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #michiganfarm #indianafarm #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

We built the mini greenhouse last week, this week we went and outdid ourselves with the big one! This caterpillar tunnel will extend our season at least a month on each end and decrease the time to maturity for crops, allowing us to bring fresh veggies earlier and more often! We may even be able to harvest greens, salad mix, carrots and other cold hardy crops all winter long!!! Thanks to some great guys for lending a hand today, it proved to be a bit more daunting to assemble than advertised!! . . . #ccrgardens #marketgarden #caterpillartunnel #hoophouse #fourseasongrowing #eatlocal #urbanfarming #familyrun #familypicked #local #fresh #farmersfriend @farmersfriendllc

While I’m a sucker for straight lines, I’m always looking for ways to reduce the time spent on pulling string lines on the farm. I found a great way to shape perfectly straight 30” beds in my 14’ wide caterpillar tunnels from @farmersfriendllc using only the #BCS (outfitted with axle extensions from #earthtoolsbcs ) With your wheels set to 32” in between them, a single tire track forms the outer paths, and a double tire track width (10”) forms the inner paths). This gets you FOUR 30” beds in your tunnel to maximize growing space! #farmsmallfarmsmart #caterpillartunnel

We built a temporary caterpillar tunnel/greenhouse for a little extra space during shorter days. It’s taking the winds nicely so far and there are lots of greens inside!! See you at market in Old Town tomorrow.

We love farms...and growing...and plants...and the weight and meaning those things have to the world at large. Keep growing, keep farming, keep finding your hands in the earth, and keep believing that what you are doing is making a difference, and we will keep putting our blood, sweat, and tears toward supporting you #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #thefutureisfarming #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Another long day, getting ready for our impending move. We removed our large #caterpillartunnel and cleaned/moved the #chickencoop to its winter spot near the barn so we can plug in the water heater. The chickens are happy for a new forage area. Still have to break down the small cat and then it will organizing/packing the barn and the house. I sure hope our new farm prospect works out. We are getting very anxious about having a new home to go to in Feb/March...

This first photo was from last weekend when a straight line wind took out my very first low tunnel. I was absolutely devastated, and panicked for the wee little flower babes that were exposed to the frost that night. The second photo is from tonight. Low tunnel 2.0 is reinforced with rebar, the good plastic and a few cinder blocks really just to ease my conscious. Shoutout to my hubby @t.sheffield_fishing who has been apart of the entire process. Cutting rebar, pounding in stakes, the whole shebang. Lord knows I couldn’t have done it without him. Fingers crossed this tunnel makes it through the winter 🤞🏻 #wildroots #flowerfarmer #kyproud #caterpillartunnel #seasonextension #kyproud

This 30 ft. wide tunnel has a lot of carrots outside, and a lot of carrots inside too. This will ensure a continual harvest of green topped carrots right through the coldest months of this year and into the next. Planting carrots in your high tunnels while day length is still long will help them get a good jump on the late season lack of sun that we start to experience in the fall. This "lead time" on planting in high tunnels is important to consider since everything takes longer to grow when there is less daylight every single day. This goes for all veggies being grown for a winter harvest, not just carrots #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #216 #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Had to include another angle showing these six round top tunnels. They are just feet from Cleveland's Westside Market. If you are ever in the Cleveland, Ohio area check out the Westside Market and be sure to walk through the six acre Ohio City Farm. Each of these tunnels are 20'x48' and they are six of the eleven tunnels at the farm #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #nrcs #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #ohiocity #cleveland #216 #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

The GOTHIC TUNNEL is here! Looking for a solid option to extend your growing season? Peaks that shed snow are the answer to worry-less winters. Today we are debuting two new Caterpillar Tunnels; The Gothic and The Gothic Pro. The Gothic tunnel includes our center purlin and wind bracing kits, while the Pro adds cross bracing for greater rigidity and lift kit for added height. Available in 50’ and 100’ lengths. Starting at $1000. See bio link for more info. #newproduct #bringonthesnow *Photo 2 and 3 shown with open end walls. Photo 4 shown with prototype scissor door.

Crisp nights have been creeping up on us, but the sun has been shining, which is very good for passive heat gain in the high tunnels. Temperatures are going to keep falling, but hopefully as the cooler weather establishes itself all the growers out there will be able to establish a good regimen for keeping the daily heat gain through the coldest parts of the night #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops
