I sheltered my bed on the 5th February, 2011 and started at 9:00am. To shelter the bed I used wooden hoops as frames to support the palm leaves. I shelter the bed to protect the lettuce from strong winds and loss of moisture from the sun.
Sheltering was all about the use of creative skills in order to keep the plants safe. The use of large sticks and coconut branches was used in the process. This was done so that the lettuce would not get too much sunlight and heavy rainfall.
