Hoop Houses: Eat from Your Garden Earlier and Longer

by                          1000494

Hoop houses are a great do-it-yourself project that can make it possible for you to garden all year long. They can also be used for storage, as a temporary garage, or even as a workshop. They are inexpensive, easy to construct and when completed they also:
