Hay Time

This weather may be remembered as the only time we have had no panic to get the hay about leisurely
Hay what ya  looking at  !

And not a cloud in sight!

The Keder polytunnel

How the Keder polytunnel was constructed:                                                                                   
Laying the foundation for the "hugle" beds
Sheep's wool on the ground
A great way to discard of old fleeces from our sheep
Large chunks of alder added to the wool and compost
The mounds are high-3 ft high
Leaf compost laid on top
More compost is added

Many hands..........
The edges of the bubble wrap slide into the metal tubes
Rod about to tighten the cover
It's finished

Et voila!
