As others have suggested, I would run a 1 by 4 hip board down the side then attach the plastic using the two furring strip option. Since you are going to be removing the plastic, I wouldn't spent the money on wiggle wire. While it is easy to work with, I don't like the way it cuts the plastic, just my opinion.
When I built my movable tunnels, I used the furring strip option. I am very happy with it. In fact, I haven't messed with the furring strips.
Next year I am wanting to build one of these tunnels. Post some pictures when you are finished. I am interested in making it taller too.
Also, I would be concerned with the 2 feet in the ground. I am guessing that this will be in ground that has been worked. It would be very loose. I would go at least 3 if not 4 feet into the ground. If you are looking at saving money, maybe every 2nd or 3rd or 4th one be a longer post.
Just an idea.
