I have a family party this afternoon so I can't get to the plot today.  Instead I have just sowen swedes, calabrese, Cauliflower, leeks, peas and corn in modules in the greenhouse.  Will have to move some of the stuff from the greenhouse up to the PT on the plot tomorrow - I have run out of room!

Busy week and I'd left the GH alone - it's not been happy about it  :ohmy:

Bottom GH
Moved out the polycarb cold frame as the plants had reached the roof so I couldn't shut it anyway.
Potted up the cukes, they're in smaller pots this year and I'll keep them on the bench, with gravel trays under.
Put all the toms into their final positions
Side-shooted all the toms. Where on earth did they all come from ?  :ohmy:
Potted all the basil in the troughs.
Potted up the peppers and toms I had from Suttons.
Gave everything a good soaking.

Top GH
We have tomatoes  :D
Watered and fed as things are looking very sticky.

Not sure what to put in the space I have up there at the moment.

Emergency re-pot and move around of neglected plants.  All my back up pumpkins came through at the same time as the original sowing I'd given up on.......I dare not count  :nowink:
 I do hope I get a chance to get things planted out this week- it's getting crucial!

Had another tidy up, washed all the tomato pots & trays :wacko:, yes I know I should have done them last year but I was doing something else :lol:, also various other pots too,but not the ones down the side of the house. Then I took lots of the rapidly growing beans down there to try & slow them down until I can harden them off & plant out.

I replaced an old plastic covered door with a new lighter mesh covered door for summer.  I put compost on all the beds and planted my toms.  Finally.  Just a new cover to go on and we are on fire. :tongue2:

Stripped it all down for summer- put out the things that need to be out, planted the hardened off stuff, removed the inner plastic cover from the 4 tier, and removed the plastic corrugated doors, which leaves an open ended sheltered lean to for the chillis and toms.  It was 40 degrees in there today!  Forecast is 10-12 overnights for the next 2 weeks, but I might throw fleece over if I think it really needs it.

Greenhouse put up finally at the weekend so can join this thread  :)
Dug out one side of it and laid out weed fabric and covered with stones, paved down the middle.
Potted into final places, my 5 cucumber plants and first 3 biggest tomato plants into bottomless flower buckets on grow bags. Watered well and fed them. Butternut squash, pumpkins and courgettes there until ready to plant.
After work tomorrow, will dig out the other side, put weed fabric and stones down and start on next grow bags. Have 14 more toms to pot as didn't expect them all to grow.  ;)

Planted out 15 tomato plants and broke down one of my staging down to make more room for peper plants that need to be planted.

Planted 16 tomatoes into their final pots,even remembered to put up the strings at the same time,so no getting out of hand, plus this year I used a waterproof pen to label each & everyone & this year the staging didn't collapse sending labels one way & plants the other :lol:

Put my tumbling toms into two hanging baskets. Left in greenhouse for now until decide where am going to hang them. Put them outside last year and had small crop but this year I have a greenhouse :)
Sowed my free herb seed, oregano, dill and parsley.
Sowed few more spaghetti squash as others not germinated though ? too late. Plenty of spare seed though.
Sowed some khol rabi and PSB in pots.
Putting rest of my tomatoes in their pots tomorrow.

Cleared out the greenhouse and took out the staging to make way for tomatoes. 12 plants so far with another 6 still in the house. Growing a variety this year. Shirley, Aisla Craig, Gardeners Delight, Sungold, Octavia and maybe a few more when I go to the garden centre. The cucumbers are still in the house but I'm probably putting them in the polytunnel when I get that recovered!

Spent what felt like ages taking sideshoots off the tomatoes. The plants are about a foot tall now and (I think) growing quite quickly. Am hoping I am getting the watering right, this is the first year of greenhouse growing.

Still got far far too many plants in pots in the greenhouse and I hope I can get them out and into the ground soon.
