What happened to the rain? We were predicted loads, but not much came. This gave me the chance to finish off a few little jobs that needed doing. The greenhouse (i use the term loosely) is now finished. The old shelving unit, free from www.freecycle.net is now nailed to the wall to enable it to stay in place over winter, and i have attached sheet plastic to protect the overwintering chilli plants and the last of the spring onions, which are slowly battling on.
I have planted some ‘Valdor’ lettuce, which is only suitable for Autumn planting, in there too, in the hope that it will give us some leaves for summer.
The greenhouse is stapled at the top and pinned at the sides and bottom to enable winter access for me but keep the frost out. I’ve done this in two sections so that i don’t get loads of horrid flappy plastic around me when i go to fetch some veg.
We also popped down to Dundry Nurseries ( http://www.dundrynurseries.co.uk/ ) on the way to the supermarket, and ended up buying a variety of seed and winter bulbs…and this is before all the seed catalogues have arrived!
