Clearing the polytunnel

hens in polytunnel Oct 13

One of our polytunnels was used this summer entirely for growing tomatoes but recently I picked all the fruit, green or red and stripped out all the plants. There was no likelihood of new fruit growing and the green tomatoes could be ripened in a tray in the greenhouse. The space created will be used for planting autumn and winter crops.

In the photo above, work is just about to start and the hens have been allowed in. Below, the final bundle of tomato plants is removed.
