    I’d love to grow in one of your organic stands!

    Good stuff, I'd love to see more technical videos as well, I'm sure there's an audience out there for videos on algae effects and macro/micro ecological behavior.

    I love that polytunnel, everything is happy in there and it is surprisingly spacious – those doors are a real plus. Is the plastic reinforced – it has a 'Georgian wired' type pattern – is it thicker plastic or an internal wire grid? There are some polytunnels where I live, but whatever we use, we have to expect the inevitable damage from the successions of storms. You have secured your polytunnel well, I bet the grape vine will be gripping it by now as well, helping out with the securing. You can use engineering bricks as an alternative to a damp proof membrane. You often see people use these bricks as a band of blue in walls (such as Staffordshire Blue). 'Busted some good moves' at the end there! Great video, good to see more of the polytunnel.

    I used to install fences, I was taught that it's bad practice to cover in things like bitumen which stop the wood from breathing. Damp soaks down the post, but the bitumen stops the wood that's coated from drying out which can make it rot faster. Of course there are people that say the opposite, so each to their own I guess. Personally I put a few inches of small stones at the bottom of the hole and then cement posts leaving the bottom of the post exposed on the pebbles. Supposedly it helps the post dry out. I've heard that farmers say the best thing is to cover the post in old engine oil, but I guess that's not so good for the environment. 🙂
    Edited to say the most important thing is to buy wood that's already treated!

    My husband is mending the broken doors on my wood greenhouse. You did a good job there, that’s not blowing away anytime soon. Wow to the athletic intro !
