I've been chronicling the coldframe project every few days now on my camera. And each time I check in on things one more plant ends up getting tucked inside. Variegated Vinca major for containers next spring, 2 of them, went in on the 14th. Yesterday an ornamental cabbage was added. This has to stop soon.
I've also been talking further with my brother about his hoop house in Maine as my coldframe collection of plants continues to grow. He purchased his Hoop House Greenhouse Kit from Hoop House Stuctures http://www.hoophouse.com/. He remarked that, "the service was terrific and they were very responsive, friendly, and good at answering questions." Quite an endorsement.
Ralph Bartlett of Hoop House Structures provides a personalized approach offering to accommodate special requests such as adding a few inches in length to a greenhouse. This low-tech business is located in Mashpee, MA on Cape Cod just over a three-hour drive from where I live.
When I contacted him his reply included a brief statement about finding this blog "of interest". That's a good thing since I certainly find his Hoop House Greenhouse Kits of interest too.
