Still Coming…

I have been continually amazed at the hoop houses all summer long with production and how well everything has grown.  The last couple of weeks I have been amazed at hoop house 2 and the fact that I am still getting tomatoes and peppers this late in the season!  Loving it though!

About Leanna Hale

Leanna Barth, born and raised in NC, first came to Polyface in July 2010 to attend one of the Intensive Discovery Seminars. She loved it so much that she applied for an internship position and was accepted for the 2011 season, after which she took the inventory/gardener position. Before coming to Polyface, she sold produce from her family’s market garden, along with homemade baked goods. This venture was mostly inspired by having read “You Can Farm” by Joel Salatin. Having always loved the outdoors, animals, and gardening Leanna is excited about this coming year, all that she will learn, and how the Lord will use this job later on in her life.

    A hoop house and cold frames are on our list of things to construct so that we can extend our growing season. Farmers markets are already closed here in Michigan (at least the small, close ones) so it would be nice to have fresh, organic produce still.

  2. How much longer until the greenhouse becomes winter housing?

    • Leanna says:

      It won’t be too much longer. In fact we are spreading chips in some of the hoop houses today so that they have plenty of time to dry out. We will start putting chickens in them sometime next month.

    I love stretching growing seasons! Here in Florida with our mild winters it doesn’t take much.

  4. Off topic but are you battening down the hatches this weekend or are you expecting it to go North?

    • Leanna says:

      A little bit. Today we were making sure that all the animals would be moved to safe places where they could have the most protection should the storm be bad.
