Planning Ahead

I have plans for my hoop house this fall.

After I pull out the pepper plants currently winding down in there (which may happen this evening, with luck and a bit of a cooling off of the current sweaty day), I am going to plant some cold season crops.  Swiss chard, peas, lettuces, maybe some spinach; all of them should fairly jump out of the ground and get growing immediately.  And then, when it does get cold and frosty, I can drop the sides of the hoop house, add some interior hoops & secondary plastic, and perhaps keep fresh vegetables growing until the bitterest cold months.  I've never tried this, but I think it might just work!
