Polytunnel Interior Works

I have dug all the beds in the polytunnel. It was a lot of work, especially as I had to relocate a huge number of daffodil bulbs from the central bed.

I will find a place for some of them outside the polytunnel tomorrow. They seem to be very resilient – they survived us all trampling them when we were building the frame and sheeting, and they even survived hidden under the groundsheet for a week or more!

I have also made my first piece of staging for the polytunnel – a hanging shelf made from leftover wood and polyethylene. It will be good for resting seedlings on once it warms up a bit and will also double as a little bit of extra frost protection for seeds planted in the ground in there over the next month or two.

This one is taken from the front door. As you can see, the shelf is a convenient place to pop the watering can.

The paths will be narrower once the edging logs are in place. Getting those in place and finishing off is a job for tomorrow. Fortunately, though it is cold outside, inside the polytunnel it is pleasant enough not to need a coat when the sun is shining.

While I am getting on with all of that, there is also work being done on routing wiring through the main house for satellite Internet etc. and a reclaimed wood floor is going down in the caravan. So, a busy day all round!
