High Tunnels: Moved!

We moved the “moveable high tunnels” this week and have a video to prove it:
High Tunnel Moving.   Although it is fairly anti-climatic, its still pretty neat to see the structure moving.  Moveable high tunnels create a versatile environment that proves you can never have too much diversification in your production system.  Crops like tomatoes, green beans, and peppers (see picture below) were planted while still under the protection of the high tunnel, allowed to grow to maturity without being stunted by cooler night temperatures and now with the tunnel moved off of them they can continue their growth cycle in the June weather with that extra jump-start.
