Cold to Warm Season Structure Change: Quick Look In

This shows the plant and perspective in relation to the insect netting. There will be plastic going over the top. The goal was to get the insect netting up and clipped in place before the top plastic was added. Both will be wiggle wired in so the plastic and insect netting are held in the same U-channel. The insect netting is also shallowly buried along the soil to hold this in place. Both of these ends will help seal the transition points which is important for insect exclusion.

The goal is to make this change as quick as possible to not only beat some of the heat, but Squash Vine Borers (SVB) are around peak flight so at this moment in time the plants are exposed. As a result, having as many things as possible set-up ahead of time is important to help keep this process efficient.
