great idea there Charlie. I think I still have a bit of the poly somewhere. Just got a new lot of shadecloth sown last night by a lady that knows her stuff, and this year will be able to pull one big length of cloth over the hoophouse.
Where is that short length of poly...............

I'm guessing it can just be sown with a sowing machine and some UV resistant thread? Might have to hijack the wife's sowing machine :)

I've just covered my dirt garden veggie patch with 30%, its very easy to stretch it out of shape.
I just used the black plastic cord and the giant plastic needle to sew it together.
They sell the cord next to the net.
I purchased a complete roll from somewhere on ebay and with delivery charges it was still less than half the price locally.
