New Polytunnel

My last little tunnel was 10’x8’ and along side my little greenhouse, they done a job for me for close to 25 years. The greenhouse was taken down in 2019 and the small tunnel alone just wasn’t going to cut mustard over winter. So, down it came and up went the new tunnel 14’ x 15’.

Old tunnel
Down it comes.
Mss as jot cut back on the boundary hedge to make room for a decent fence.
Secure again.
The new space ready for building.
Double width door for big trees.
Space 😀👍🏻
Heat bed for yamadori going in. Foil bottom down first.
Heat mat in
Topped off with a fine bark mulch for humidity.
All done just in time as Autumn was moving in fast.
Some simple benching put in that can be moved and removed as needed during collecting season.
Winter protection in action both for cold but more from excess rain.

So far with storms seeming to hit every other day it has stood strong. It’ll be doing well to last as long as the last one. I’ve a misting system for the yamadori still to go in and a watering system as well.
