Left side almost ready.

Left side almost ready.

Yesterday i done some more work with the plan of moving out the tubs to lower the tunnel on the left side.This will allow me more growing room for particular vegetables.After the tubs were removed and the clay worked on,it was time for a cuppa and then on to some more planning.

I also set up a top area for starting some vegetables when the time arrives.That finished my day in the garden.Looking out at the snow that evening still hanging around,could not win there.[Pictures will be added.]

Brrr. I couldn't face going outside with a bucket of water and getting my hands wet in this weather.

Hi John, Trish here (formerly Redenka).  Your tunnel looking great.  I want to get started on mine. Do you have probs with the folds around the doors? Mine are packed with decomposed flies from last year.  How will I get them out?

Thanks Trish.I have a similar problem,so i clean around there with horticulture soap as much as possible.Especially at the sides.of the folds around the top of the door.
