Thursday and Friday at the farm, we built our Caterpillar Tunnel! Pretty sure the tomatoes will love their new home.

Before draping the plastic.



I had a lot of fun making this thing because it involved learning how to:

1) use a grinder to cut rebar (for the ground stakes), 
2) bending steel pipes with our bare hands using a jig (see photo below),
3) using a pipe bender for the angles.

An pipe arched over the jig (on the picnic table in the back) and bent at the middle and sides.
