My first yipee, was this modest bunch of February gold bunch of Narssisus. Small, but all grown by me at Hill top farm, so the first of my English grown flower harvests.
The next was that at the eleventh hour, my Polytunnel planning permission came through, - so we've spent the weekend erecting a 40ft Haygrove tunnel.
Day one was all about Metal work. - Which went together very easily, and just needed a Spanner and lots of fiddly finger work.
Day 2 was about the cover, - which we put over cushioning hotspot tape which protected the plastic from the metal. Yes we did have help for this bit, - our friends David and Dana Leigh arrived just at the right time.
Clever clips and crocodile wire means that it is held into place with no nailing or splitting the cover, and meant that by early evening it was all up and water tight (or snow tight, as that is snow on the picture! - 30th March!!!!!!!)
Yesterday, we put in my lovely potting benches, (including one at William's height, so that he can help me with planting up and sowing seeds) and tidied/ tightened up some of the clips.
So now I have 12m x 4m of insided growing space. - Sweet peas are first on my list, - what would you grow?
