Keep-out-the flies tunnel

We’re building a brand new tunnel this year, which we all refer to as the ‘Fly tunnel’, though this is something of a misnomer, because in fact it’s intended to keep flies out!

Being organic, we’re always trialing less labour intensive methods of pest control; the new tunnel will protect our alliums, such as Tree Onion,Welsh Onion, and Red Welsh Onion which can be prone to attack from ‘onion fly’.

Fingers crossed that the tunnel will be finished in time for our first Open Days of 2011, which take place from 1st-3rd April..less than a fortnight away:~
