There were a ton of sticks littering the lawn after all the snow we had this past winter. We have two dead eastern white pine trees below the house and they are losing branches like crazy. I picked up six wheelbarrow loads full of stick just from one area of the yard.
I also checked on my little hoop house. This was set up on Sunday because of all the rain in the forecast. I also like to keep my seedlings in one to stay warm on these slightly chilly nights.
It’s such an inexpensive way to have a greenhouse/cold frame when you can’t afford one or don’t have the time to make one. I put one of these up in the fall too over plants I’d like to keep around a little longer. I actually have about 25 of these hoops that I use here and there. This summer I might experiment with putting a low tunnel over my peppers to give them a little extra heat.
