Setting up the raised beds in the polytunnel

One side of the polytunnel has been set up with staging.  The other side is going to have raised beds for growing vegetables.

I picked up the raised beds and the “veggie” soil from Tommy Topsoil (http://www.tommytopsoil.com/) near Halifax this morning.  I bought loose soil which was loaded onto the back of the pickup as well as two 8ft x 4ft raised beds.  It took most of the afternoon to set them up, but they are now ready for planting.

The L200 will carry about 1 ton on the back.  With a cubic meter of soil on the back, we are just about full!

Two raised beds (8ft x 4ft) setup side by side.  It took a cubic meter of soil to fill these two raised beds.
