Hoop Houses And An Outdoor Shower In Arroyo Seco, N.M.

 in Arroyo Seco, New Mexico they have a beautiful garden area
 but two other things caught my attention.

One was the hoop style greenhouses to extend the growing season
 in this high altitude area near Taos.

We were there back in May and the salad greens looked great.

For another take on hoop houses see my post from last year:

Second thing, was this very cool solar heated tub and shower.

I am a big fan of outdoor showers for use in warmer weather 
and to be able to reuse the grey water in the garden. 

This provides a nice prototype.

The weather was still cool out 
so I guess they hadn't gotten the shower curtain up yet.
