Asberry Acres Permaculture Forest Farm - Lesson Learned Today: Wind Protection

Wind Protection an Absolute Must

Today we've had brutal sustained winds between 25 and 35 mph with gusts up to 45 mph. Not only that, but the wind has been from the east-north east -- the prevailing wind is usually from the west-south west. I have plans for Pinus koraiensis to block the winds out of the west but nothing for the east. Ugh.

So far I've lost the covering on the hoop house. I'm going to take a look around at the plants later to see what's made it and what's not.
