While it’s not always sunny outside, it is always lovely in the polytunnel of dreams.
I think I have already nearly filled it up – squeak – I might need another one!
So what have I got in my poly tunnel? Well a bit of everything. In the far right hand row I have broad beans, lettuce, radishes, new potatoes and courgettes.
In the next row I have carrots, kohlrabi, more lettuce (and even more) spinach, coriander, onions, spring onions, some flower bulbs and radishes.
In the other middle row there is calabrese, cauliflower, and some cabbage. They are now covered with mesh to protect them from the cabbage white caterpillar. Oh, and some dwarf beans.
I have also planted lots and lots of sweet peppers (Lipstick red pepper from saved seed and yellow monster sweet pepper) and a couple of aubergines.
On the left are my mangetout and early peas. I am growing most of these in my fruit cage but thought I would experiment with trying for some early ones in the polytunnel.
I might have eaten my first peas
Then recently we put up some more fencing and I planted my cucumbers out next to the peas
The propagation bed is still full
but there are fewer tomatoes in there as I planted some among the fruit trees at the end of the polytunnel and even more in the greenhouses!
I’m also trying out some early climbing beans
The staging and walkway is full of seedlings waiting to be transplanted
We have eaten our first lettuce and radishes from the polytunnel and I can’t wait for even more deliciousness.
