Big day last Friday as the main growing section of the polytunnel got fitted out!
Thanks to the kind loaning of a 7.5 tonne truck the racking was picked up from storage and delivered on site.
After carefully measuring and levelling the foot pads the upright frame went up with literally an inch to spare!!
The idea is to build a platform on the beams at the base, on that we will put grow bags to start us off whilst the last section will be the hydroponic test area. This gives us the opportunity to learn about running such a system and then roll it out over the whole polytunnel as we gain confidence.
The tomato’s, cucumber and other vining plants will be trained up guide wires so eventually all you will see is a wall of green.
