Well, sometimes it seems like me and gardening were just not meant to be. I'm so sad. My husband spent so much time designing and putting together this hoophouse, and with our high winds last night and today, it collapsed. We are getting a freeze tonight to boot. It's too windy to go out there and rescue the seed trays that were put in it yesterday. I'm afraid part of the structure may come down on me if I enter at this point. The only part left standing is the center support which is made from 4 x 4 posts in the ground and 2 x 4s tying the posts together on their tops. The whole east and west sides collapsed, broken and flagging in the wind. He spent countless hours of his vacation time this summer designing, modifying, cutting, screwing, gluing, hooking, clamping, covering and roping this thing to hold up to the weather. It looked so decorative and sturdy when he was finished. Next spring when everything was greening up in there I was hoping to take a picture to share with all of you. I was so proud of my hubby's creation. We were both sure there wouldn't be any problems this year. Wow, and we didn't even make it to the winter wind storms. I was really counting on having a good season, and saving money at the grocery store. I'm so sad I could almost cry.
