  1. 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 …..

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

      1. 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…

              1. 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.
