Thanks for the info on the shade spray.  I should have know that!!! Guess I
wasn't thinking.  Actually the hoophouse is open completely on both ends
during this time of year.  There is a beautiful breeze blowing through on
most days, and seems to me to be as much ventilation if not more than our
closed in greenhouse with fans and shutters.  I do want to grow green in the
winter, at least through early winter and start up again in the spring.  I
will check on the shade cloth prices also.

> Lime will wash off with every rain, Kool Ray is a spray on shade sold by
every greenhouse supplier, it sticks good, I used it once and found it never
came off for winter. Plastic recyclers dont like dirty plastic with shade on
it. Get 50% shade cloth, you can very easily remove and replace it daily as
weather permits, you will not gain much of a temp reduction without fans
under shade.  Rollup sides are the best way to go you can add manual rollup
sides to your house for less than a hundred dollars...Bob.
