Winter veggies at HHF

March 11th, 2017 No Comments » Posted in Blog

Winter vegetable production has become one of our specialties here at Happy Hollow Farm!  Living in Zone 6a in Mid Missouri provides us with the unique opportunity of being able to grow a wide array of cool weather loving vegetables under the protection of unheated high tunnels. 

 

We also build small low tunnels, inside the high tunnels, using metal hoops and lots of row cover (a woven polyester breathable material) which acts as a blanket to keep things from freezing.  You’ve never tasted anything as sweet and delicious as overwintered greens like spinach, kale & swiss chard!
