Long-time KG reader and keen plotter Chantal O’Sullivan from Rugby in Warwickshire has had a good year on the allotment – thanks in part to her new polytunnel

We bought a massive polytunnel and put that up in February. I don’t know how we lived without it. It’s making life so much easier and I’m growing lots of things from seed for transplanting that would usually have been at home in the greenhouses. Because they’re not in pots, there’s less transplanting to be done – just the once to the final growing space. What’s more, I’m still putting in seeds for more main crops to fill gaps from potatoes, garlic, onions, etc., which I wouldn’t normally do. We’d previously just fill with salad leaves, etc. Add that to all the stuff that we’ve already eaten and is growing in there to fruition, and it’s making for a much more productive plot.
