One of my aims this year was to get a tunnel up so I could grow a few tomatoes and the like. Although I got the kit about a month ago, I just managed to get it covered at the weekend, which is not bad going and just in time to maybe get a bit of a crop in it this summer.
|Thanks to Pat for helping me set out the hoops level and in line.|
|The trench on the stream side was full of stones and compacted subsoil, |
while the other side was as soft as cheese.
|I had the door frames already.|
|A family effort was needed to get the polythene up and over, held in place |
while the trenches were filled and the cover kept taut. Lots of family fun...
|All in all it came out pretty well.|
