    Auto vent over winter

    I unscrew the hexagonal threaded knobs that the pistons push onto, so the roof vents don't open, possibly letting in birds, horizontal rain, etc., in when I'm not checking it every day.

    I think it does work fine. The tomatoe shoots have grown very well and fast, along with othe plants I planted late, and are fruiting. Not sure if I will manage to see any ripe tomatoes, given they are outside, but the temperature is going up again and the sun is showing up, so perhaps I will.

    Whitefly

    IIRC ricky101, it's whitefly that African Marigolds repel. Marigolds self-sow in my polytunnel each year and there has never been a whitefly problem, so I tend to believe in that tip :)
