Still some more final touches need doing.

Still some more final touches need doing.

For a few hours over the weekend,i decided to spend more time in the greenhouse.The area for the Tomatoes is almost complete,with the centre canes there needing to be tied up and finished there.

A form of a mini well supply is in place,and into these the water supply will go.Similar with the centre containers only smaller there again.The shelves have been given a final fast washing down,and here will be used as a form of hardening off area for the next while.

The coldframe outside the greenhouse is next on the list,to leave it ready when called upon.[will do that later in the week].

Going away earlier this morning the weather reading was back to -2 and quite nippy.That changed in a few hours with bright and sunny weather,a touch of summer.

Very tidy!

Do you keep all your tomatoes in pots John or plant some in the greenhouse soil? What size pots do you use?

Well organised John, this weather is very encouraging.

Thanks John.
