Hello Everyone, 
We had a productive weekend with our urban agriculture crew. While the unusually warm weather beat down on our necks we built the Mountain Roots hoop house. This hoop house is a season extending structure that will allow us to grow our cold hardy plants on both ends of our gorwing season as well as some more warm weather prone plants during the middle of the summer. We amended the soil within it with aged manure and planted some radishs, turnips, and greens. Come the beginning of May we will harvest all of these preseason crops and replace them. Currently, we are thinking of planting melons in the middle with tomatoes, pole beans, and basil on the outside. In the next few weeks we will be planting much more!
