batten down

Homer has been fighting the nighttime temperatures. It went from a couple of nights where it was cold enough to produce a light frost to snow, hard freezing and desiccating winds.

Yesterday was spent getting the sides on the hoophouse. Now, all winter, when the sun shines the temperature inside the hoophouse will jump to at least 80. No matter the outdoor temperature. As the the sides are battened down it is suddenly summer again. At least when the sun is out.

Lettuce and other fresh greens love this. For us, the feeling is mutual. Fresh greens? Thank you.
