Welcome to my blog

I was born in Guernsey (but now live in Brittany) and our main industry was growing tomatoes although that industry has now virtually disappeared. Growing tomatoes to a Guernseyman is like wine to a Frenchman, it's in our blood! I do not profess to be an expert, but I have picked up a few tips and techniques which work for me.

Mr TK building his polytunnel

On a wet Saturday morning, I thought I that would put a few video clips and photos together to make a little video of when I built my polytunnel.
Please forgive the quality as it was filmed on Mrs TK's digital camera, but pull up a chair, pour a glass of wine and lets let the camera roll.
Video- Mr TK builds a polytunnel  watch it on You Tube.




If you do not fancy building your own tunnel, First Tunnels in the UK have a really good range at exellent prices. (Please note we do not have any affiliaton with this company)

  5. Hi Darren

    I got it online in France, there are many places in the UK that supply tunnels or plastic, go for the strongest. Mine has really stood up well to the sun and the snow and frost.
    Send me a picture to post of the finished article. One think I would say is that I would make mine a little higher in future, as I grow my crop across the path wires and the plants touch the roof a little.

  6. Hi STeve, when you were talking about a polytunnel, I did not think you meant a barn! It is excellent! My I could have some fun in there...

    1. Hi Carole
      It's perfect, but I would build a bigger one next time!
      I might do a net sided one for winter veg etc as we do have the space with 7 acres, I am sure the horses can spare a bit of land.
