[Market-farming] row covers

We live in a very windy area and need to use row cover on most of our 
crops. After three years of frustration, we finally have discovered 
that the use of 1/2 each rebar seems to solve the problem. We have 
purchased about 3 1/2 tons over the past three years-we then cut the 
20' sections into 10' pieces and lay them on both sides of the row 
cover-use about a 10' gap between each 10' section. On the windward 
side, we tuck about 12" of row cover under the rebar-on the other 
side we just place the rebar close to the edge of the row cover and 
pick up this side when we harvest, weed, trap gophers, etc.
