Orienting high tunnels (and other questions)
I was reading ajsmama's post with some interest and thought I'd post a question of my own as I too want to set up high tunnels.
Our strongest winds are from the NW and SE, with peak gusts in the spring up to 60 mph. For this reason, I'd like to orient them NE-SW, so the wind strikes them on the sides. Would this work for sun exposure? I'm going to have them in a very open field.
Because the site is surrounded by hay, I'm going to ring the site with gravel to create a buffer zone. Is this a good idea?
The plan is to have four HTs and eventually lay down gravel between the HTs as well. Good or bad idea?
