As it was suggested I introduce myself on another thread I got engrossed in, here goes.
I'm in North Pembrokeshire, 600ft up, facing North/North West can see the sea about 10 miles away. Quite new to gardening although farmed for years (odd I know), got a tunnel this year to keep me sane during a layoff from work, loved it and now want to bring a bit of field into shape.
Totally impressed by the tunnel - it's dry! Additionally though, it has been so productive. We joked that if we saved a £ a week it would pay for itself in 10 years. Despite a late start (it was June before it was up), we started saving up to £10/week on veg very quickly and, more importantly, still are. As well, there is veg and fruit in the freezer which has been a big, mostly empty bread store for too long to remember. Not all of this came from the tunnel because once I got started I was sticking veg into any spare bit of ground and picking any fruit I could see.
If I had to choose between my Kindle and my tunnel I'd split in two.

I love Pembrokeshire. Have been going there for years. The area between Fishguard and St Davids is particularly stunning. When I win the lotto that's where I'll go. Already plan to have ashes scattered there as the kids know the way off by heart. I work for a company that gives you 50% off your funeral plan as an employee! LOL what are they trying to say?
Maiden name is welsh (So I'm told)

My wife won't let me in the garden at home. She says I just like cutting things down!
That's not true. I like cutting things up too!!!
