hardening off

18 April 2011 23:27:21

spent the morning going in and out like a yo yo taking stuff out of the tunnel that can be hardened off just to make room for other stuff. while i was doing that i was also in and out of the house putting washing in and takin it out to the line.

after dinner i started potting on tomatoes and peppers, still have loads more to pot on, i am using a good mix of compost and perlite to get better drainage and plants. before i left for my course i covered all the plants i had brought out with fleese, had no intention of carrying them all back into the tunnel, i will take the fleese off during the day and put it over the at night for the next couple of days. i was really happy with what i got done,

tomorrow morning i will get some more done then the afternoon i have to go to town, but i will have the evening to do some more work.

Know the feeling Kitty I feel I need a housekeeper too as the garden seems to take priority after teaching.

Just being your last few journals you've been very busy.  Your tunnel is full to the brim all looking great.  Good luck with it all.
