How to make a poly tunnel with NO money:

Lengths of plastic piping – cut to the same length… or guess like I did. I’ll add here that the pipe was left on my field by the next door housing development. Id never buy it.

Metal rods to bang into soil – bang them in until they are solid. I used metal strengthening rods. Slip the plastic over the rods at 5 actual feet, the ones in your boots, lengths apart

2×2 wood to make ends and doors – cut to size and screw to pipe (oh yeah you need loads of screws long enough to go through the wood and into the piping.

Plastic to cover

Good soil to plant into – I’ve acquired mine from the local Mare and Foal sanctuary


Plants – Toms, Peppers and Melons – (I bought some seeds from Reel seeds)
