This is exactly the method that I use in windy southeast Wyoming. I use old wire highway fence to make my tomato cages and I find a 55 gallon drum liner fits down over the cages perfectly and can be kept in place with a few clothespins. A bit labor intensive but saving grace from hail and cold temperatures. Although this year it looks like I will be trialing tomatoes in a high tunnel!!! I cannot wait.
Oh and Bill, I had the opportunity to hear someone speak this last week that I believe you know, Mr. Lynn Clarkson. What an inspiring man!
