January pulytunnel.


I have a lovely 3×6 Keder polutynnel since April 2015. I have spent all my saving on it in the Spring as I felt such great need to have it. It has a wee bit of protection from some small trees and a windbreak that I have built. The winds here are horrendous so I needed that. I went to check on it today and it was so nice to see that it is doing well. It’s in my kind neighbour’s croft some 50 yards from our house. I sooooo can’t wait to get stuck in again and start this years growing season. All seeds have now been ordered:-).

Good luck with your polytunnel this winter. If it withstood this weeks storms you'll do ok up there. Wind can be one of the most difficult factors in a garden to deal with. Welcome to GOY.

It looks great. Must've been put together well to withstand the current winds.
I've been concerned about my greenhouse, too , but it is protected by a wall/fence and a large oak in the green behind it, so, hopefully it will be ok like your tunnel.

Welcome to Goy Eva, you have set it up well and what a joy to garden out of the wind, I don't really know much about where you live but would imagine you get some powerful ones , mind you I'd love a view like that, it will be interesting hearing how you do through the seasons and I wish you well.....

I have been cycling on Skye, lovely memories. I was riding along and a Razorbill flew low over me, had a look, and flew off up to the Loch. I got so excited I called
out "Hello" to it. Peaceful bird.
'Henry' sounds most horrendous. I would put some guy
ropes on the polytunnel for safety. Good luck.
Keep sending us your news. That is part of the joy of Goy
it covers such a large range of the UK and USA, always

I hope your tunnel stood up to the latest storms ezandman. The news this morning said you had it pretty bad up there.
Good luck with your planting plans too.

I like your polytunnel and your lovely views. My green house was destroyed by strong winds few years back and I still have not replaced it.
