What to do with roll-up hoophouse sides in winter?
I have a 20'x24' hoophouse, double 6 mil walls, with air being blown between the layers on the upper portions.
This is my first winter going in with roll-up sides. I understand that I need to tack down the vertical edges with furring strips or lathe.
But what about the metal bar along the bottom? It's not all laying on the ground--part of it is suspended a couple inches above the ground level.
My inclination is to remove the bar and bury the plastic into the ground for the winter, particularly on the side of the hoophouse facing the prevailing winter wind. But I am not sure what the challenges will then be in re-attaching that bar for ventilation in the spring.
What has been your experience with such devices?
