Post Starting with a polytunnel.
Last year my good friend gave me a 28foot by fifteen polytunnel.

A couple of days ago, I had the digger driver.

Finally, we've been able to take the first teetering steps towards getting the polytunnel up. The digger driver dug a trench where the hoops and the polythene are going to be buried.

We have some very good soil in this particular area of the field.


See if you can spot the silly mistake that i've made ? :oops: :oops: :oops:

At first glance I'd say it has something to do with the pile of dirt in the MIDDLE of the trench line :roll:

Are you using the extra dirt to raise your beds or was that the boo boo?

Two boo boo's now ! :shock:

In my first post I said " A couple of days ago, I had the digger driver." I've just read it and think that I'd better add the word "in" to the sentence. :oops:

Yes :thumbright I thought that it was a neat job to have the soil in the middle but as I'm going to be using the soil to bury the plastic once its been draped over the hoops, it should have been stacked neatly along the outside of the trench ready to be shovelled in.

There's no fool like an old fool. :lol:
