We went out to a village and built a greenhouse this weekend. Here's a picture of the guys putting up the beams.

We didn't get to finish the work, because of poor planning and miscommunication, but here's a picture from when we changed the plastic on the greenhouse at our test plot last week. On the one we built in the village, we used bamboo instead of wood, so it's arched like the big greenhouse at home...

I've been out to that village several times, but never had this view of the mountains before. I guess the clouds and haze must have hidden them from view. These are the two snow capped mountains between which the Yangtse River rushes through Tiger Leaping Gorge.

In your next report, tell us a bit about how and what they grow in the greenhouses. We'll be interested!!
