Moving Jim, our splendidly mobile polytunnel

Yes, Jim the Polytunnel has moved to winter residence and is now back to it’s original location on the field. Here’s a short video of how we do it.

We have to make sure that any crops in between where we are moving the tunnel from and where we are moving it to are no more than a foot high, otherwise they’ll get pushed over by the horizontal bracing and tow-bar. So this season we have a bed full of spinach, mooli and turnips that Jim has to be moved over, to settle on top of our winter salad crops of frilly mustards, spicy salad mixed leaves, beet leaves, endives, Chinese cabbages and herbs.

Thanks so much to Vince again for the use of his 4×4 and winch, and to all the volunteers who helped. And thank you also to Daniel, our visiting volunteer from Brazil for help on the day, and the film.
