Now that First Tunnels are on the case it’s really time to get serious. So I’ve been out most evenings measuring up and have now laid anti-weed fabric over the polytunnel’s area in a token attempt to kill the grass before the polytunnel arrives on Friday. It gives a pretty clear idea of where the polytunnel will be and how big it is. The wheelbarrow gives you a sense of scale:

I’ve also ordered the growbeds now – 12 little ones, three large, plus the three sump tanks and the fish tank. And the gravel is on order – four tonnes of it. I can foresee some interesting weekends coming up!
