The moon shines.
After the cards last night [no luck] a couple of hours were spent in the vegetable garden.The air was quite cool and the greenhouse back to just above 8 deg,so i took no chances in case of a light ground frost at some stage.All potato stalks[Solanum tuberosum] were covered.The beds in the main vegetable garden were done first off and then to the outer veg areas.Time to let them have another read.About an hour later i checked inside the tunnel on some of the deep tubs [9-10-11]There the Sweet corn [Zea mays,] needed to be tied up for the next stage.Watering was checked around 7am earlier,and some needed doing.All Tomatoes,Sweetcorn,Runner beans,Beetroots,and Cabbage were checked upon.Carrots,Peas,and Lettuce will have a check over at lunchtime today.The outer of the exit gate will be given a miss for this evening with all time in the vegetable garden.The hoe will be in full swing,on the cabbage beds.[all going well timewise]Long may the good weather last.
