    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)

    Welcome. Enjoy.

    Try mark-og-ithe (k like loch)-- horse riding - it sound nicer than marchogwyr - horse rider.

    I just walked out of a job twenty plus years ago. All a bit scary but I've never regretted it.
