Hoop houses are important during the cold months especially because they trap heat in and ensure that the plants inside don’t freeze to death. It’s pretty crazy how effective a sealed hoop house can be… on Sunday when I went in to water I had to unseal the hoop house to get inside, and as soon as I stepped foot into it my glasses fogged up instantly. It wasn’t particularly freezing outside, but the temperature and humidity change was so huge that it made it hard for me to see to water. It was probably about a 10-15˚F difference between in there and the outside. Needless to say, our turmeric is doing quite well!
