Every Saturday we like to give a shoutout to one of previous podcast guests and @farmatglenbrook is up! ⁣ ⁣ If you look closely at the film on this greenhouse it looks like bubble wrap––Sadie installed this #solawrap at @campglenbrook last year and shared the (somewhat harrowing) details in her episode. Really amazing stuff, though. Said to last upwards of 20 years without needing to be changed!⁣ We also talk about her gardens and the camp and so much more!

Roll-up sides are probably the most widely used ventilation feature for high tunnels and hoop houses. Its not super warm yet, but before long many of you will likely roll these up for the entire summer. • • If you are interested in learning how to put these together we have a video on our YouTube channel that walks through the process (link to our channel in bio). If you prefer to read through the steps we also cover this in our most recently published blog post. • • • • #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #greenhouserollupwalls #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

These are old pics, but I thought I'd share them because side door entrances are super rare, and this series of images gives a small glimpse into how the plastic is layered before a top cover is installed. • • Another small piece of channel was installed just above the door (only visible in the last picture) to create a seal between the top cover and door header. • • We haven't done a side entrance swing door in a while, but if you are having to tackle one on a retro-fit maybe these pics can help out. • • • • #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

What kind of end-walls do your high tunnels have? • • When you purchase end-wall packages from us (or a structure kit) we pre-cut as much of your end-wall steel as possible and include detailed corresponding drawings. • • The pictures show drawings for three different end-wall configurations we provided for three different customers. The steel tube the customers received corresponded to the shown measurements. Tubes that require trimming are marked as such. • • Our intent is to take most of the guess work out of the building process as possible. • • • • #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #diygreenhouse #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

When old structures get retrofitted...salvaged hoops on a farm with some new upgrades. Door, fan, end framing, trusses, greenhouse poly, and roll-ups from TVH. It is crazy how adding heavy duty components to older (or salvaged) tunnels often makes those same core structures look brand new. • • • • #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #ohiofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Super excited to have Sadie Stehlik ( @farmatglenbrook ) join us on the podcast today to talk about her work at @campglenbrook. Maybe it’s my lifelong dream of owning a summer camp, but I really wanted to understand how the economics broke down and how the campers were involved in the gardens. And I also knew Sadie had just installed #solawrap , so I had to hear about that! Don’t forget to check out our show Sponsor @growingformarketmagazine. Use the offer code “notill” for 20% off your subscription (which any grower can use!).

That’s a (sola)wrap! Finished giving our greenhouse a facelift.. one we hope will last the next ten years with @johnnys_seeds #solawrap plastic and landscape fabric on the floor for better weed control. We put the tables back in today to be ready for our first seeding of 2019 tomorrow! Big shoutout and thanks to @assawagafarm for sharing with us their experience and helpful tips to make this go way more smooth. Thank you Instagram farm community for sharing knowledge and advice with each other! @anniecourtens @jessehernandez180

Beautiful customer shot of some spinach peaking out from behind Frost Blanket. • Hopefully this spinach can provide a number of cuttings from the time of its planting through the end of its useful time in the tunnel. One of the keys to growing for multiple cuttings through cold weather is to seed early enough for the plant to gain strength before day length reduces significantly...The frost blanket also helps a good deal since the plants perform significantly better if they never drop below 32 degrees F. • As for the structure, this is a decked out 30 ft. x 96 ft. tunnel with 8 mm twin wall polycarbonate end-walls, SolaWrap top cover, interior and end-wall forced air ventilation, and double sliding doors. • #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #fourseasonharvest #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #youngfarmers #cannabiscultivation #newyorkfarm #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

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

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

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

This tunnel is 30 ft. wide, and unlike one of our recent posts that displayed what thermostatically controlled electrical ventilation looks like, this structure ventilates off of 100% electricity-free passive airflow; all vents and windows still auto open and close, but they operate using hardware components that don't require electricity #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #flowerfarm #flowerfarming #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Have you planted for winter harvest yet? When you need to plant depends on what zone you're in, and what crop being planted. Eliot Coleman's books do a great job walking through planting schedules for tunnel plantings. Michigan State University also has a great planting schedule available on their farm resources page (at least the last time we checked) @ohiocityfarm has already started their plantings in around half of their tunnels #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #clevelandohio #ohiocity #216 #caterpillartunnel #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Air movement is an important part of any covered growing spaces' design. Whether you want to go with passive air movement, or prefer a thermostatically controlled ventilation setup, air movement is key to maintaining a plants production. It helps prevent hurtful temperature spikes, and it also reduces the risk of harmful bacteria and pests that remain in a structure with stagnant overly-humid air. The tunnel in this picture is definitely ready to move some major air. #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #plantnursery #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #growingfood #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

This 30 ft. wide greenhouse model is set-up at a plant nursery for the specific purpose of providing covered retail space for customers to browse plants all year long. While we love the look of the tunnels no matter where they are, we definitely love the way they look when surrounded by beautiful plants! #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #nurserylife #plantnursery #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Side door greenhouse entrances are coming back in a big way...Well, in some instances at least. If your structure has end-walls that completely roll up and down, or if you have a mobile tunnel, side door entrances could be a functional entrance option to keep the end-wall surface area freed up for ventilation, or structure mobility #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

Serious hustle over the last 19 days to build this new seedling prop house. Ready to start 1000 hemp plants tomorrow and move @tapaloupollinators ’ dahlias out of the bathroom and laundry room and playroom and, well, you get it!

Nick and Pup from #botlfarm helped us put roll up sides and a fan on our greenhouse! We’re using the #advancingalternatives 7:1 ratio gearbox and we love the self locking mechanism on it although the thickness of the #solawrap makes it a bit of a workout to roll up the side completely! 近くに住んでる農家友達のニックと犬のパップが手伝いに来てくれました〜!これでグリーンハウス完成! #newctfarmers #youngfarmers #organicfarming #beardedfarmer #有機農業 #農家
