More shady deals...

Well, she's done it again rolleyes

Scarecrow asked me to build more shade for the garden.

No hurry, but it had to be done today since the temp was to be over 40*C!!! eek

So, to work.

The beds were beds 1, 2 and 3 (see here) and later 4.

The whole vegetable area is now protected from severe heat damage in time for the summer about to hit us.

Bed 1,2 and 4 were basically just the old star piquet with polypipe attached and covered over with shadecloth.

For bed 3 I used an old trampoline frame upturned and covered in shadecloth.

Doesn't everyone have one of these left over from when the kids were home? razz cry

Attach the shadecloth to the frame using the same method that I used to attach to the hothouse here.

It only took about 4 hours from start to finish cool

This included having Scarecrow hem the edges of the shadecloth so we could slip it onto the pipes.

Following that, I started up a fan club for Scarecrow!!! lollollol

Regards, Doc wink
