Standing up


My polytunnel project has passed the next significant marker. I finished getting the foundation poles in and was able to mount the four hoops and main stabilisers. That’s an important step forward for a couple of reasons.

Practically, it means the soil moving is done for a few days. Since tomorrow is due to be wet again and then the temperature will plummet to a level where the earth may well freeze overnight, it means I don’t have to worry about digging in frozen ground and can press on with truing up and reinforcing the metal structure.

The other is psychological; keeping up momentum is important. There’s still a fair way to go and I’d ideally like to have the tunnel in operation by the end of next month, assuming we don’t have a freezing early spring. There are still lots of steps to go but having the hoops standing up is a good place to have reached.
