Should I build a hoop house?
Hey! I'm considering building a hoop house in my backyard for fruits and vegetables. I'm wondering if a hoop house is going overboard or if it will really help my vegetables do better. My yard faces south and gets tons of sun.

Thank you for your question. Building a hoop house or cold frame is entirely up to you. and can extend the growing season of your plants in that you can get them started earlier in a protected area such as a hoop house.
I'm including a couple links to CSU fact sheets that can provide you with more information so you can make a decision.
Please let us know if this does not anwer your question or if you have other questions.
Thank you, CSU Ext Master Gardener Desk
