The ploytunnel journey

21 April 2011 11:46:02

  At long last the Polytunnel is finish allehula allehula .......... man If we had only known what work was involved i fear it would not have happened at all.

Delighted with it , love, love, love it , great place for coffee in the morning the smell of the herds is lush.  Follow the work involved in my photo album....you'll realise  why i refer to it as a journey ... small piece of advise , if you can get someone to install it for you DO.

A big thank you to my dear husband who is seriously exhausted and broke after the journey.  xxx Murt.

  Very funny, Well spotted Mark .....typeo ... herbs of course ......... but we did have an audience of a herd of cattle , I'm sure they will be back to see the progress , as long as they stay on the far side of the ditch they can sniff away.

Well done Ailish & Martin. Super looking job. I must give a call in next time I'm passing and admire it properly. I love the stone floor, very neat. I'll ring ahead so you can have the coffee ready. :)

 All animals were roaming around the garden today soaking up the sun where possible , added some photo's delighted to see the sun helping the flowers bloom in the garden.

Martin has just collected our ploytunnel so all going well it will be ready for planting by the end of the week, 15 x 26 foot ( itching to see it standing).


so watch this space.
