What materials did you use? PVC Pipes: 1/2 in. Schedule 40 PVC Pipe 3/4 in. Class 200 PVC Pipe 6 Mil Plastic Sheeting PVC elbows and joints. (We didn't want to bend the PVC pipes.)

What are you most proud of? It gives us a 2 month jump on the front end of our growing season (which is short in Washington State.) We may get another month or more to grow our plants in the fall.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? We preferred to use elbows rather then bending the pipe because our gardens are 4' wide.

We added several months to our growing season by making poly tunnels. We start plants in our house and plant them under the poly tunnels in March & April. We've already harvested lettuce, strawberries, spinach, potatoes & some zucchini, just to name a few items. My husband added a PVC pipe sprinkling system, which makes watering easier and more effective. We got our ideas from LDSprepper on Youtube.
