At the time of this writing, the eve of Frankenstorm Sandy, the mulberry stick hoop house is still intact. Inside are planted peas, lettuce, spinach and radish. There are also a couple tomato plants that survived the killer frost with ripening fruit on the vine, some radish and carrot going to seed and even a flame lettuce plant that has already gone to seed producing new leaves.
