Our collaborative high tunnel project began in August of 2011, with the placement of one high tunnel on RNH land and three at other farm locations. Spring’s early onset is surely toying with our outcomes, and will leave us considering how the tunnels might perform in more typical Wisconsin weather. Or, perhaps this early spring will be our new normal; only the years following can tell us for certain. In any case, we’re thrilled to be seeing green after this strangely beige winter. Here’s a peek inside our high tunnel this April afternoon:
This week projects some cold temperatures, but we’re discussing moving the tunnel back on its tracks in the very near future. Meanwhile, there is always weeding to do, and plenty of other projects have us brainstorming and planning. RNH now has three more people on site with new ideas to flesh out. Welcome to me (Erica) and Cella and Emmet! And happy April to all of you.
