I’m going to buy the bolts. I have looked into bolt options and learnt a lot about bolts and inter-metal corrosion. If you screw bolts of one metal into something made of another metal then one will corrode a lot quicker, which would be dreadful if everything collapsed around my ears because I cut corners. Besides the bolts have sort of square heads so they fit into the channels of the greenhouse frame, so I guess this means that only real choice is to buy more bolts and sooner rather than later as I have seedlings that will need a new home soon.
But I didn’t waste time sitting about thinking about bolts, I made my decision while working furiously in the garden. I now have two new soft fruit beds all done and dusted and looking fantastic. So the red and black currants have a lovely new home and a new friend each as well. So all I have to do now is the gooseberries and the blueberries. While at the garden centre – I couldn’t help myself and mysteriously four soft fruit plants climbed into my trolley. Well it would have been rude to kick them back out – especially if they were so desperate to come and live with me. So now I need to provide them and their bedfellows with a high standard of living.
It was a good day and it felt so good to see such a visual outcome. I love days like this.
Come again soon –the days are ticking by and that list won’t do itself!
