Just bought a polytunnel
« on: June 02, 2018, 21:31 »
After 4 years on the allotment and being offered the half PLOT alongside ours we bought a polytunnel to go on it.
It's a secondhand 15 ft x 12ft made by premier polytunnel
Now we need to assemble it next weekend then form the no dig beds and away we go
Undecided what to grow over winter yet though

You'll never look back Offwego  :D One of the best investments we have made at the plot are our tunnels tbh, other than the plots themselves of course  :lol:

Lots of things we grow over the Winter are module-sown in July ready to plant out as soon as there is space: Perpetual Spinach, Mustard Greens, Tatsoi, Spring Onions, Lettuce, Parsley, Beetroot, overwintering Dwarf Peas, Mooli, Broad Beans for example

Hope that helps!!

Just as sunshine said  :)

I'm going to put a 2nd mini-tunnel over one of the beds, so the salad planted underneath will actually have a modest amount of growth over winter. As long as winter doesn't outstay it's welcome we should have some pickings early next year.

I used some of the large cloches we have, which worked well
