More progress is being made at the nursery. The Keder greenhouse is  in position and Mypex weed-suppressing fabric has been laid down.  I'm told the next project will be some raised beds.

Some photos from the Keder  team from the assembly of the greenhouse.  The BBC TV programme Beechgrove Garden use several Keder greenhouses so they have a good  reputation!
