So I'll be moving to a farm the family purchased in about a week or so, to begin getting things set up.

Parents don't have the capital for a greenhouse at the moment, the house on the property is being renovated and the power is disconnected. Will need a place to start seeds. I was thinking about having a few posts holding up a sheet of plastic, with the edges buried into the soil. If you have any ideas please let me know.

hi Ahsum,

welcome to permies

an easy set for a seed starting greenhouse is to use woven wire fence
bend it lengthwise in a hoop and put the plastic over it
the fence will support and hold the plastic in shape
some string or wire ties or twist ties can attach the plastic to the fence
if you bend the edges so they lay flat on the ground 4- 6 inches or so
you can then hold the greenhouse down by putting rocks or something
on the flattened part

good luck
