    Expanding the grow area

    Hi everyone,

    I have been busy building a polytunnel to move my current plants into and expand my collection as well. I bought a "kit" which I am putting together with a help of a friend.
    Very excited about it as I can't wait to start using it!

    I am also putting a fence around it, I have dogs who will love nothing more then to tear holes in my tunnel

    I will also be building a table which will house the plants, the table will have it's own watering system built in, basically an Ebb and Flow system, Ill use a weir as my overflow and that will go into a reservoir and be pumped back. Will also look at a filter system to try and clean out any algae growth.

    Here are some photos of the progress so far:

    I wish that I had a greenhouse like that. Good luck and be sure to show us what's growing in there.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    You appear to have copied a download link, rather than an image link to those files. Looks very nice though!

    Thanks all, will keep you posted on the progress.
    @nimbulan, please check the images now, I am using my google drive to host the embedded images but made some changes to the url which should hopefully have corrected it

    I can't see how the wood frame attaches to the ground. If it is not staked you might want to consider it. Where I am I have seen some pretty big stuff take off in a high wind. Though I guess the two uprights at either end might be... looks great!

    @pearldiver, Where the plastic tubes meet the ground they are seated into metal rods that have been driven into the ground. 14 rods in total.
