Chatting on the Plot / Re: hip operation done
« Last post by LILLILEAF on Today at 10:56 »
The exercises are the hardest bit now,as i had a revision,the old hip replacement out then every thing has to be cleaned and flushed out,i think it was over double the time as of the 1st time hip,my problem is low blood pressure so they monitor you every 15 mins after your op.
 Well its all done and you know i was only in hospital for 3 days the garden looks like a jungle,my husband has done a wonderful job of watering and looking after the fruit and veg.
 BIG thanks to all the good wishes i have had from you fellow veg growers.Lillileaf

Dodged the lightning here thankfully!
I shade the side and roof on the side that gets the afternoon sun, which in my case is the southish side.

Didnt it rain last night!  The lightening was magnificent ...

Anyway the ground is now lovely for getting little plants in, so off we go, then if it rains again this pm they will settle in lovely.  PS it is not to rain this am - I'm leaving washing out!
Growing in Greenhouses & Polytunnels / Re: Greenhouse Shading

My greenhouse faces the sun directly on one of the long sides, and I only ever need to put shading on this side.  As already said, it depends on the orientation of your own greenhouse.  Try the most obvious side first, and see if it provides enough shade throughout the day. You can always add more if needed.

Sweet corn - 4 out of 50 germinated.  New batch down and zero germinated.  600 peas sown twice now, also a no show - covered up so not mice or birds.  Tomatoes rubbish.  Going to live off onions, potatoes and courgettes, assuming they produce something!  Disastrous year, thankfully the freezers are bursting from last year!

I was expecting the heavy rain of the night to continue today but it started to dry up after Id started cleaning,then as it clouded over & began spitting with rain I went a walk up to our sons & ended up bringing our granddaughter back with me for an hour so daddy & grandad could carry on with the lounge renovations, she ended up staying all afternoon. Friend came to visit & then our daughter. Finally got to go to the plot after dinner & did a bit of light weeding, water butts are full again
