Assembling our Poly-tunnel

Hubby decided to buy me a Poly-tunnel. He chose this site between two building to give it protection from strong winds. This site gets full sun all day long. He needed to remove the lark fence post.


Then he remove all the nettles.


He marked out and clear the spot.



He laid out all the pieces and made sure everything we needed according to the instructions had been sent before we began. He organized it by numerical order.


We put the galvanized steel frame together.



Then we draped on the PVC Poly-tunnel covering on it. I think that was the hardest part.




Tomorrow my tomato plants will be the first thing to go inside.

  1. Oh Honey, it’s wonderful!!!! You must have both worked so hard and won’t it be exciting to put plants in there tomorrow? I can’t wait to see!

    • Thanks Karen. I can’t wait to get to planting. I weeded the potatoe bed today as well.Even though I have been water the garden it has not been enough water. The growth spurt after the last two days of rain proves that. The garden is doing good just the same. I need to take picture of how the garden is going and what we plant in the poly- tunnel.

  2. By how much longer do you think it will extend your growing season? Good that you’ve got so much space in your garden for one 🙂

    • I really have no idea how long this will extend our growing season. I guess we will have to wait and see. This is new territory for us. We don’t know how we are going to best use the space inside. We plant to experiment by trial and error and see what works best. W
