Summer Shade house:




25mm Saddles with screws, self tappers 10Gx25mm

This week has seen the construction of our shade house. Chris has planned it all, and slowly, slowly it is emerging. We bought the poly-pipe when the watering system was installed, some months ago.

Large 50mm irrigation pipe was cut and loops were formed by putting them onto star pickets. White 25mm PVC water pipes have been added to made the whole thing more stable. (ends have been capped.) These details are added for any of you who are thinking of constructing one for yourselves. Forecasts for our Australian summer are for hot and dry weather. We’ll get the shade cloth over this construction, after I get the whole area planted and sorted. One end will be just for the raspberries, the other end for asparagus, and the centre area for other vegetables.
