Jay, the last time I looked at their pictures, the high tunnels at
Michigan State had their rows in that configuration. I think in a 30'
wide house however, and they MAY have had aisles at the outside as well
as through the center.

Subject: [Market-farming] Row Direction in a High Tunnel
I am sitting here with 12 inches or more of snow on the ground and I am
making plans for the spring. I have a question in regards to row lay
out. I have an 18 by 45 high tunnel, running North and South, that I am
going to plant alot of greens and other cool weather crops in. I
currently have 4 row running north and south in it. I was wondering
about putting a 2-3 foot aisle down the middle of the tunnel and have
3-4 foot wide and 8 foot long beds running east and west. I would put
a one foot aisle between each bed. I figure I would have 10 beds on
each side. I figure this would be a good use of space and would provide
me more growing space. Does anyone plant this way? I would like to
know your thoughts.
