My wife planted some early lettuce and covered the rows with some long grow tunnels. These are plastic sheeting attached to hoops which are stuck into the ground; picture at link.
These were fine until we had a couple of windy days, with wind gusts up to 40 m.p.h, at which point the one on the windward side was blown out of the ground.
Has anyone else tried these? If so, do you have any tricks to keep them from blowing away? I thought of putting up some sort of wind break, like a short fence, on the windward side, which is to the north and west so it wouldn't block the Sun.
