Working Party 16 April 2011 – Raising the Polytunnel

Lots got done this Saturday  – lots of spuds got planted, sprouting broccoli harvested and at long last the skin got put on our polytunnel, the first one of the three frames we have had for a while. Dano brought some more herbs and planted them in the herb garden. We’ve also got a polytunnel raising page with lots more photos of the polytunnel raising for those that may be building one yourself and looking for how the stages look, we struggled to get a picture of how it would all progress beforehand, and would have liked to see more pictures!
