Hello my name is Jose Zuniga and I'm representing Well we have planted our vegetable garden already, we have been weeding it at least once a week but what is next. Well bad weather whether it is going to be rainy or if it is just going to be cold it could destroy your plants you don’t want to do that. When it is a fresh virgin little vegetable garden there is a storm hitting this way yeah we have the wall that is going to protect it from the winds but if we have heavy rains it is going to destroy it completely it is just going to wash off. So what we are going to do is basically buy one of those you can get it at a home improvement it’s a big plastic they come in like different colors and what you are going to do is place it on top you are going to create a little tent. By doing that let is pour let it rain the vegetable garden is going to survive. Now you could do that in the event you don’t have the wall as a barrier don’t worry go to the center of your garden put up 4 sticks, use the same plastic cover it over, puts some bricks on top of it to make it sturdy and this is going to survive the weather. Once it stops raining the following day just remove it and you garden is there. How about your garden is about to produce the harvest? Do the same thing we don’t want to damage anything we want to be sure that it has air circulation because we don’t want to kill the plants. Right? And this is how we protect vegetable gardens from bad weather.
