Day 3 on the Polytunnel

Redoing the hoops

Redoing the hoops

James has departed back to Dublin think it was the big escape as he reckons it's all manual labour at home. Ali was organised to come and do the carpentry work on the tunnel and before 10 am he arrived and the first question was how did we think of building one this way so thanks Hoey for sharing details on yours. James had sort of decided it was not really going to be high enough for him to work in so just to make sure he can continue in the labour camp it was raised slightly as some of the hoops had to be changed. By early afternoon Johnny and Ali were ready to construct the timber ends in preparation for the recycled door and cover.

Looks great; I guess the helpers will deserve some of the produce!

You want money - I want work. - works in the case of the boys not real enthusiastic but then how many 18 to 20 year olds are.

Johnny just need to eventually have him think it was his idea.

Ali needs to be paid, think he will be constructing a tunnel using the same method.

Brilliant. I can see 'light at the end of the tunnel' now. :)
