New Tunnel Ordered

I took the plunge today and ordered a new Poly Tunnel for added space for over Wintering my trees. This year I hope to have everything tucked away somewhere. This is what should be delivered next Tuesday.

It’s the slightly stronger version with heavier frame. I rang the company to order it and told them I had seen the same one on ebay cheaper. Turns out that the ebay site is theirs as well. He gave it to me for the cheaper ebay price but, as usual, living in Northern Ireland, even though we are still part of the UK, I had to pay an extra £10 postage [grumble grumble, pet hate] That said, all in, postage and all, it only cost me  £82.

One of my benches is on it’s last legs and will be taken apart this weekend to make room of its arrival. Anybody free on Wednesday to help me put it up? No harm in asking 😀

Futter with Trees

A few months back at the start of the Summer we got a new club member. Michael came to us after having gone through a few wilderness years with his trees. I had a few years like that myself and was keen to get him up and running again. I’m delighted to say that not only has he jumped back in with both feet, he’s even started his own blog! He’ll probably hate me for posting this link to it but, if he even gets a fraction of the enjoyment from it that I have gotten from mine, he’ll forgive me 😀

By way of explanation, ‘futter’ in Northern Ireland, roughly translated means, ‘to play around with’, not to be confused with some of the other global meanings out there! I googled it and was rather surprised!! As I call myself an eejit, I can connect with his regional blog name 😀

Anyway, here’s a link to his blog, give him some encouragement and lets hope he’s still talking to me after this 😀
