Well finally getting things in the ground. Freeze advisory the next two nights so I had to get in high gear and finish the hoop house. This year we built the garden fence to keep our dogs out. I decided that we could build a simple hoop house enclosure to help out with covering the plants every night.
We have to use these walls of water to get our plants like tomatose and peppers out of the ground.
I use electrical conduit as I have found that it holds up better than irrigation pvc. The 2x4 at the top has holes drilled to receive the end of the conduit. At the fence they are connected with a u shaped clamp.
There it is all hooped up! I attach the plastic at the top with staples. At the bottom it is attached to three chunks of conduit cut to length to act as a roller. When I want it up I just grab the conduit and roll. The plastic wraps around the conduit.
All rollled up!
Shot of the interior. You can see the roller conduit sitting along the rail. The plastic below is just scrap that I stapled to the fence. Both ends of the house are capped with black plastic, as is the fence at the back.
