I got a large tent frame which we are going to use for a greenhouse at the off grid homestead.

This is a rugged, old 12 by 20 foot tent frame which is 8 feet high at the peak. It is made of galvanized steel with solid, welded joints.

This is a very solid and free standing frame. The ribs stand up on their own with no wobble. I can put it together alone unlike the modern tent frames which are so wobbly they will self destruct if you dont have help putting it together.

It took me half a day to take the entire thing apart because it was filled with junk. And the grass and plants had grown up around the framing. But I got it all home by lunch time.

After lunch I put it all back together again. This took more time that I had thought because all the pieces had to go back together exactly as they were due to the screws holding them together. I forgot that the screw holes were not factory made and I had some trouble lining parts up.

But eventually I got it all together again. I also managed to straighten out the bent poles. The tent had been hit by a truck at one point which bent the poles in very badly. I used a V in a tree to bend the tubes back into shape.

Now you can hardly tell which poles were bent up. I am very pleased with the results.

This is a very rugged frame and it will make us a solid greenhouse.

I plan to use a combination of Hugelkultur and raised bed planting boxes to grow our vegetables in next year. I will start building the boxes this fall and winter so the beds are ready to plant by spring.

This will greatly lengthen our growing season and protect plants from the often freezing nights that we have all summer.
