yesterday brian and i began construction on a little hoophouse. guided by the advice of our friend jose, pictures of hoophouses we found on the internet, (thanks mostly to wealth underground for the inspiration), and our collective tenacity to work through problems that arose (read: miscalculations, obstinance, wind!!, and tender hearts), we emerged victorious.

and we even saved a little time after ezra and rachel came to play to chronicle the dorky process.
