I Grew This

In San Francisco. In one of the windiest neighborhoods in the city. Cucumbers are notorious for despising the wind. This is nothing short of miraculous.

My secret? That kick ass hoop house I built. San Franciscans and all you other folks enduring cold, windy summers, you gotta get one.

  1. Ooh, awesome! Now I want to see your hoop house.

  2. do you have a blog about building the hoop house? we want to build one!

  3. I don't have specific instructions. Here's a post about it

    It's a very simple set up. Tons of info on the interwebs about how to build these things. I made mine similar to how people build hoop frames over their garden beds. a bit of pvc pipe, rebar stakes, zip ties, 6 mil painters plastic, and some big clips. make hoops, hook pipes onto rebar stakes, clip on plastic and voila!

  4. You are a hoop house rock star!
