Greetings from Morton, NY

Post  sfgbeginner on 5/26/2014, 2:26 am

Hello.  I've been doing square foot gardening for about 4 years now, but still consider myself a novice.  I have two 4x4 sfg's and I'm trying to figure out how I can put a pvc hoop house over the gardens to provide some shade.  Have any of you done this with success and if so, could you direct me to a place you know of that has the instructions?  Thanks much.   Very Happy

Welcome SFGBeginner - and +1 what Sanderson said! LOTS of the folks here have hoops or covers for warmth, bug protection, and/or shade. Dig through all our goofy posts and you will find lots of help and SFG wisdom.

Again,  welcome
