When we last saw my mini polytunnel from First Tunnels, it was just an open frame, sitting out of the way on top of a raised bed until Ryan had time to finish it. Since then, Ryan has been working on putting a door onto the frame, with magnetic latches:

Once that was done, it was time to cover it in insect netting:

And now it’s finished, standing proudly over the garlic:

It’s more protection than the garlic needs, but the mini polytunnel’s first real job will be to protect the ripening blueberries in the bed behind. For now, bees need access to the blueberry flowers. In the meantime, it is preventing the feral cat from fertilising the garlic any more!
