In my opinion one of the best things you can do for your vegetable growing is install some sort of glass house or ploytunnel. These will allow you to grow some crops almost all year, grow exotics during summer and generally extend your growing season by a 30%. I never once doubted polytunnels can withstand extremely strong winds as long as they are securely anchored and have a complete air seal. Needless to say my enthusiasm to erect the new tunnel outweighed my urgency to install maximum wind protection. A week after putting up the tunnel 80 mile an hour winds struck.
