Hmm I really like this idea, now who wants to come till my garden?

Whole rows of plants can be covered using long, low tunnel cloches, which are left open at the ends for thorough ventilation or closed off when greater protection is required. No rain will reach cloched plants, so remember to water them as necessary.

Garden Cloches - A garden cloche is invaluable to the allotment gardener. Whether used to warm the soil and get a head start on the sowing season, or protect tender vegetables from cold temperatures.

How to do a Simple Plastic Tunnel Cold Frame or Row Cover. Grow salad greens all winter long, to grow out tomatoes and other tender plants, to extend the season for an early Spring start or a late Fall harvest, or even as a screen house to keep birds off of your strawberries or vine borer moths off of your squashes.

Simple Plastic Tunnel Cold Frame or Row Cover: This plastic tunnel is being used inside of the greenhouse to protect tender plants against a late hard freeze - very effectively I might add.

If I could only pick one season extending structure, it would be a cold frame. Incredibly versatile, a simple cold frame is the key to taking your garden from a two or three-season plot and turning it into a year round vegetable factory.

A dome support is so easy to make. Just bend a 10-foot length of 72-inch PVC pipe from corner to corner of your box, and then another from the opposite corners; then tie or bolt it at the intersection at the top to make a dome that can support any type of cover.

A "How-To" on using pvc supports over your raised beds, cover them with plastic, cheesecloth, or wire to make a green house or keep out critters. Idea: Drill holes in them and have it hook to your hose?
