Polytunnel frame advances

Last weekend saw steady progress with the polytunnel frame – the irrigation cross pieces and braces were fitted, ridge pole trimmed and door frame measured out – it’s looking great! It’s good to finally figure out what all those boxes of bits and bobs are for! One trench with nice straight sides was also dug for the polythene. This started to fill with ground water – a heads up to getting things raised up when the tunnel is in use. Next week (05/10/14) we will finish the door frames and dig the other trench. Then its fingers crossed for the sheeting and autumn gales. Nearly there!
