Corrugated sheets

Went to the allotment today to fit the corrugated clear sheets to form a cloche. I had wire down the plot, but didn’t have anything suitable to cut it, so ended up using string and canes to anchor it down. My son tried to help, so gave him his little spade so he could dig!

Found a packet of Pilot peas down the plot, so we sowed a small row but it is unlabelled!!!
Last year, my mother bought some weed control fabric, so finally decided to use it. My son decided it was great fun to shovel soil to the middle of the fabric (and not round the edges as I tried to do to anchor it against winds). A second sheet was put down but anchored with stones and water/weed filled tubtrugs.
