Things are really moving in the new polytunnel. The garlic in the bath seems to love the deep soil. We religiously water the tunnel every day. Already we are eating lettuces. The best thing I like about the polytunnel or greenhouse is you have somewhere to potter about in even when its raining. Rather like today. You can tell it's a bank holiday.
Carrots and onions growing in the old tractor wheel rims. See the sweet corn growing in an old milk strainer I found in one of the farm outbuildings. The green plastic thing is a kneeler and seat. The Brassica plants need seperating and planting outside. The blue planters are old tractor wheel hubs.
Tomatoes, lettuce in containers and cabbages growing in the bath.
This picture is taken from outside the polytunnel. The early potatoes are poking their stalks through the soil. Celery and last years leeks are growing near them. Rogue potatoes and weeds are growing through the second handconcrete pig slats that I bought really cheap a couple of the months a go. You can see the new lawn in the background is now established. I decided to downscale the veg plot and rest some of it for a couple of years. We will soon be running out of growing space with all the vegetables growing in the polytunnel. Perhaps I might claim a few feet or ten back.
Going to sow some swede seeds this week. I love swedes. Especially when you pick them when they are the size of a snowball. Small is beautiful - especially young vegetables.
