Community Support!

Saturday’s forecast seemed perfect to operate on the hoophouse. The ridge vent has had some chronic leaking problems, due to being pulled out of alignment by the fan-fed air bubble. Team Rimol had advised we add stabilizers to each bow instead of the normally directed every other. Mike and Andrew spied the break in the […]

Start to finish: 5 minutes Makes […]
