Slowly but surely the polytunnel basics are taking shapes. All the raised beds are now in place but these photos were taken just as Lovely Hubby was working on the middle one.
The pathways are in place ....
... and everything is solidly set together to make full use of the space in there.
The brackets you see in this picture are the supports for the work bench Which is used for planting and potting up on, and then can be an additional shelf to hold the filled seed trays, I am taking what I learnt from my last polytunnel and refining things slightly.
So this time there is a small paved area, just big enough for a small chair and a dog or cat bed, so I can have a sit down every now and then when reading up on things or drinking coffee (I used to have to perch on the edge of the raised beds), and while I work a cat or dog or both can join me if they want to .... and they always used to want to :-)
I'm really happy with how it's coming on, but unhappy that it would have been much further on this weekend but for the company sending us the wrong fixings, they sent us the clamps for 25mm hoops and we have 35mm hoops on this tunnel. So we are waiting for our order of the right size to turn up and then we can get back in action. Soon there will be polythene .... and then I will be back in action.
Meanwhile Ginger the cat is doing his Marlene Dietrich impression ... wanting to be alone. He has a bit of a pussy cat cold and although we can't see him much around the house as he prefers his own company when he's off colour, we can hear little ' ptishoo, ptishoos' every now and then. Poor puss :-(
