What I did in the Greenhouse or Polytunnel today

As requested.

Please only post here what is relevant to greenhouses and polytunnels.

Feel free to also post the same information in the "What I did on the plot today" thread as greenhouses and polytunnels are all part of the plot!

Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Potted on toms and cucumbers in heated GH.  Weeded and watered the first earliest and strawberries in the PT.

More scallions.  More coriander.  And more lettuce.

And sowed runner beans in the propagator to be moved into the PT when germinated.

Pretty worried that the toms have been sown too early.

Will be sowing sugar snap peas this lunchtime.  Off to open the doors at both ends.  My min max thermometer is giving highs of 35+C if doors left closed so need to monitor that!

Moved Peppers, tomatoes and Aubergine plants from window sill to PT.  Hoping that my 6 x 220 litre water heatsinks are going to keep nighttime temps up enough.

Potted on the 2 'early tomato experiment' toms and the sweet peppers - all had roots at the bottom of the small pots.

Potted on tomatoes , peppers, chillies etc. Sowed a few flower seeds. Split and potted on a supermarket living herb parsley plant. Topped up the taters in pots to cover the haulms. Sowed a bit more spinach, more radish and noticed some more sweet peas coming up.

Frantically searched for any germinated pepper seeds, without luck. Watered all the cell trays and helped a few Ferline tomatoes shed their seed cases.  Gave the strawberry tower a good soaking as they look to be sending out flower stems  :ohmy:  Sowed another 12 Arnold for root stock but Im out of cell trays now so  :(

I found that all the 20 carefully labelled pots of tomato seeds & 4 pots of chilli seeds plus peppers & auberge news that I lovingly sowed on Saturday were all labelled with a water soluble pen  :ohmy: :mad: :mad: so now I have no idea what varieties they are, & I was going to be oh so methodical this year.
