A couple of decent September days with temperatures around average for late September and no rain.
I decided it was time for a change around in the greenhouse. Our tomato plants were taking up an awful lot of space for the amount of tomatoes that were left on the plants. The tomatoes were removed and will be ripened elsewhere, perhaps in the summerhouse.
This year we are trying something new in an attempt to have some winter salad crops. Rather than the greenhouse be left empty or worse still filled with “stuff” we can’t be bothered to clear away before winter sets in we’re trying our luck with some growbeds.
Three of these beds have been set up down one side of the greenhouse. They’re pretty big and take a large amount of compost to fill them up. Each one so far has the contents of two extra large growbags emptied into it. These were used through summer for our tomato plants so I’m going to add some fish, blood and bone before topping them up with some extra compost.
All we need to decide then is what crops to try in them.
