We enjoyed a tour of the Fellenz Family Farm on Saturday, May 17th.  Transplant plants are available for sale at the farmstand along with spring vegetables.  Strawberries should be available early to mid June.  Here are some photos I took - in no particular order:

Walking to the hoop houses/high tunnels.  Irrigation work and recovering first hoop in process.
Plantings between hoops.  Hoop on right will have double layer of plastic with pocket of air between to better protect without wind noise.
