Polytunnell work for Monday.

06 July 2009 22:04:34
All work was in the polytunnell today.Not the best of days with the weather.During the day some showers,and from 7pm a washout.Picked some nice early rooster potatoes in the old bed this evening before taking it from the tunnell and then installed some new single beds.App 15 small beds were fitted on the left hand side of the tunnell.

I have potatoes growing in my flower beds from the compost I got from my brother !!! Would love a polytunnell but dont have enough room, might get one for my home place and share it with my dad he would love it.

hi john, lifted the first 2 plants of the early spuds, delighted with the results, picked some carrots and broad beans to go with them!!

Doing some companion planting Gismo with the flowers and veg.Nothing beats the compost for growing in the garden.Your dad will love the tunnell.Here we call the tunnell our home from home, it is that well liked.

How your are keeping well Dave.Good news about spuds carrots and beans.The perfect meal.Here in the last week we have had some spuds cabbage spinach,and some peas.Nothing tastes nicer than some home grown food from your own garden.
