Growing tomatoes needs a lot of sun. In warm and rainy days, diseases can appear (such asEarly Blight). The plants must be protected from the rain, not from the sun.
This instructable shows how to build a robust shelter that resists to wind (and to snow).
- Growing healthy tomatoes in your garden (no transportation),
- protected by a durable shelter (possibly made of recycled pipes),
- avoiding pesticides...
Don't you think it is has much green twist ?
Step 1: Draw a Sketch
The shelter must have a size suited to your garden. It must be tall enough to let you walk comfortably into it.
The sketch will help you determine the size, and define how many pillars are needed.
Our garden consists of terraces in a steep slope. I wanted the roof to extend down to approx 50 cm on the back side to protect from the rear wind. This adds a bit of optional complexity.
