We were sorting out the "garage" for which read suppository of all useful bits of wood, screws and sundry items that will "come in handy". (Ladies of a certain age will doubtless identify with that),
So we found an expandable shower curtain rail - the sort that you sort of pull and twist and wedge between two walls, the better to hang a shower curtain, usually over the edge of the bath.
We have no need of such an item. But, before it could be consigned to the tip/charity shop I had a light bulb moment.
Under the ridge of my greenhouse, from one end to the other, I positioned said pole. I did not, you will be pleased to note, hang a shower curtain, the details of its use in such a place being too much to contemplate
However, I have used it to drape over it and down both ridges of the GH some fleece. This diffuses the light, and, when we have a shady day, I can simply unclip it from the occasional clips used to hold it in place down the roof angles, and gather it to one side to let in the light.
I anticipate using this method for bubble wrap in the winter. I'm rather pleased with this system, and thus far it seems to be working a treat. (I shall report any pitfalls!)
