    Ouch! Is there a way to diffuse the wind on your balcony? A friend of mine is using the breathable material from an old shade cloth-like awning from a travel trailer to shield his tomatoes from the wind and it seems to be working.

    Maybe a floating row cover? Though the lightest ones might rip too? I don’t know, haven’t used them yet myself

    Thanks @FW and @LS. Great ideas, but it’s usually not such a problem. (No problem last year at all.) I got em cinched up pretty good now, and it seems all the damage that could be done has been. Wow, did I just jinx myself? ;)
