|Catching up... here's the final wind shelter:
So far I've been pleased. The only thing I'm going to change is covering the ends w/polycarb paneling. I've found smoke colored polycarb at Lowe's for around $35 per sheet; a heck of a lot cheaper than what I payed for the other stuff.
The 30% shade cloth cuts the wind by about half, & allows plenty of light. Good enough. In fact, I like it so well I'm going to convert my high tunnel to the same design... paneling on the sides & ends w/shade cloth across the top.
Having some trouble w/a chipmunk. And probably ground squirrels, too. Suggestions for how to get rid of them? I've got a pellet rifle, but I'm not the best shot. I thought I'd set up a corn station for the squirrels to lure them into my sights... would that work for the chipmunk too?
I have little confidence in any enterprise or business or investment that promises dividends only after the death of the stockholders.
