My Hightunnel

joe-il(5)April 14, 2010

Inspired by Jay, I built one 18x44ft h tunnel. I have 55 toms 60 peppers and some zukes and cukes. Sadly, some of my toms have looked quite sick. I think is a combination of a fungus, transplant shock and mag deficiency.

I am amazed at how much they grew in 2 weeks! These pics are from a week or so ago. THe super healthy ones are going to flwer soon. Im sure the others will catch up soon, man I wish I knew what happened. They were all grown the same.

Its made from 1.5 pvc conduit, 4ft apart. The conduit has a uv protector in it. It has all ready withstood 60-70 mph winds.

sick tom, they are starting to look better now.

healthy tom.

Looking Great Joe!

I am glad that I inspired you. You won't regret it! Soon you will be talking about building another one!
