|Start with a lidded plastic berry container, empty of course.|
|Cut the lid off and discard it|
|That leaves you with a cloche that has a lip all the way around -- make sure you use a berry container that has drainage holes|
|Cut off the two narrow ends of that lip of the berry container bottom|
|Then take a hole punch|
|Use the hole punch to punch a hole in both ends of the cloche|
|One tine of the earth staple goes through the hole to hold the berry cloche to the ground -- it's enough to keep it from blowing away|
Now that the berry bottom has been flipped and is being used as a cloche, the drainage holes let in rain and air, and will allow hot air out on warm sunny days to keep the air inside from overheating.
And that's how I turn a plastic berry container into a cloche.
