We needed a warm, calm day. Keeping in mind that it IS November, that was something of a long-shot. However, after the Fed-Ex guy delivered the plastic last week, we kept an eye on the weather forecast. For various reasons, Tuesday was picked as “the day”. The Boss assured me we would be done by lunch. I nodded and tried to keep my eye-rolling to a minimum, knowing full well that his little half-hour jobs always (ALWAYS) take half the day.
It got warmer, but no sunnier. Although this was not the ideal weather situation, the Boss decided to go for it. This time of year, you really shouldn’t take chances. The weather is far too unpredictable.
We hauled the new roll of plastic down to the site and assembled our tools. First, we needed to remove all the old plastic before we could attach the new stuff.
We do the work around here…it’s a real LOW budget operation (and doesn’t allow for “hired" help) …and quite honestly…we take pride in a job well done!
But, I must say…I really, REALLY, REALLY hope that this is the last post about repairs and maintenance (or groundhogs) involving hoophouse #2 for a LONG, LONG time!
