Winter Crop Protection

In December the QE garden beds were covered to protect the winter crops from the elements. 

After some experimentation we settled on installing 2 c-clamps at each end of bent PVC irrigation pipe.  This was covered with cloch greenhouse film, and held in place with cloche clips, available from Westcoast Seeds.

Inside the cloches the kale, winter lettuce, radish, mustard greens and winter cover crops are thriving.
