High Tunnel Greenhouse DIY 6 Years Later!!

Learn how to reuse old framing to create a high tunnel greenhouse DIY with this easy system and it's still standing 6 years later. High tunnel greenhouse construction can be pretty easy with metal framing, a few 2x4's, greenhouse plastic, and spring locks. Our high tunnel allows us to seed start and grow during the off season but on a larger scale than your usual cold frames. See how how many feet of snow it's stood up to and mph on wind storms.

I share how to evaluate where you'll put up a high tunnel and how to position your high tunnel to take the best advantage of the sun light for heat and growing in cooler climates.

We grow all of our tomatoes for the entire year in here, lettuce during the winter, as well as peppers and basil.

For our full cold frame, high tunnel, and full growing your own fruits and vegetables e-course with bonuses, check out the Pioneering Today Academy while we're open for enrollment through Thursday April 18, 2019 https://melissaknorris.com/pioneeringtodayacademy/
