I love beets! I was astounded to find out from Charles Dowding that beets can be started in pots and transplanted, until like most root vegetables, and that was a revelation and life-saver for me because we are plagued (plagued, I tell you!) with slugs up here in Oregon. Transplanting beets has made them completely doable.
I’, very interested in your polytunnel because it’s way better looking than most I’ve seen and definitely way better than mine. Do you have instructions somewhere on how you made it or can up put those up for us? Homemade is great, in my book!
There is a video I made and posted on YouTube all about it…I’m sorry to add that there are 110 videos and I cannot recall which one it is…I need a secretary, Lol!
thank you!! I can search for it.
This video shows you the inside of the tunnel, which makes it easy to work out the techical…
Ah! Searching pulls up everybody who ever made a polytunnel.
Do you remember what year you built it? Maybe that would help me narrow it down…
It’s on the Bealtaine Cottage channel on Youtube…but not named specifically on polytunnel…sorry!
Yeah, I can’t find it. Oh well. I guess the universe wants me to figure something else out.
This is one of the videos that shows the tunnel when fairly bare in Spring…so you can have a good look and work some of the techie bits out…I’ve been on a mission looking for you!
It looks really good! I do hope you find it. I’ve never seen a stretchy plastic like the one you have stretched over it, and I like that it’s tight as a drum. I can work out ribs and doors- I’m really interested in how you covered it and what kind of plastic you used for it. Also how you anchored it at the ground. If you can’t get to this, I understand. I’m just grateful that you tried to help.
I shall write a comprehensive blog on this…later today if I get time and post it up on bealtainecottage.org
oh thank you!! I’ll look for it.
We don’t have much in our garden this season because of severe rains, but I am preparing meals from the freezers and from my canned foods. We actually need to eat those down a bit before spring gardening. I’m thankful we have our reserves.
You have built in resilience and food security…’tis a pity the government here can’t manage the same!
Hi Colette Its great to see the different stages of your polytunnel through the wonderful pictures you post. I am intrigued to know the length of your polytunnel that you use, as I consider joining in with polytunnel growers. May long be today’s sunshine …..
It’s about 40ft …I have never measured it and it’s home made.
