Lots of tinkering today  :)

Rummaged around the bag of bits left over from re-assembling the greenhouse and found 8 wire hanging things so was able to string wire across the roof on both sides. Drilled and screwed some fixing into the brick base for another wire running down both sides at the bottom then put strings between the two. Used 120l of compost, a 1kg box of growmore and a packet of water retaining gel and potted on 2 of each of my tomato plants into their final positions.

Potted up the cukes as they'd started to flower - expect they'll be dead in the morning  :nowink: I'm going to try training them up strings rather than letting them scrabble up mesh or trellis.
I'm the person the monsters under your bed are hiding from.

Potted up more peppers, chillis and aubergines.  Lots of flowers coming and one open flower on my rocoto plant!!! 

Feel like I should be sowing some seeds as I haven't done any in ages....

Moving stuff back outside from spare room.... moving stuff from greenhouse inner sanctum ...to outer cool house ....to cold frame.... :wacko:
sowed a few more courgettes as seem to have ended up with only 2 plants, but last year 10 was a few too many  8)
also more kale, poppies and beans, beans and beans.  Toms in flower but we'll see-  I have history, me and tomatoes. bottom end rot, split, dead, tough.  Trying greenhouse cherries first time (gartenperle) to see if that works better for me.

... I need a bigger greenhouse.  ::)

Potted on the Jals and Californian wonder, Trinidad scorpion and bhut jolokia (which are growing so slowly) and put the mini -white cukes out in the top greenhouse so they can scramble up the chicken wire which is bolted to the sides. There was a tonne of stuff I wanted to do, like sowing beans, courgettes and more salad stuff, but I've run out of compost :ohmy: and nothing was going to get me anywhere near been and queued on a bank holiday !

Dwarf French beans in the top greenhouse are in flower but the carrots have had very patchy germination.  :(

Took a couple of piccys...

The garlic is getting on my nerves...refuses to bulb up.  Might well yank it out in a couple of weeks anyway.

Second pic is my pride and joy...Aji Amarillo from Peru.

aha! finally grabbed a bag of John innes no 2 in the rain (and I had my posh work clothes on) as happened to have parked near the garden centre  8)  Those desperate poor cukes that have been waiting only got repotted after I'd potted on the squashes as I'd run out of mid sized pots....that was a crazy half hour.

Nice looking layout there Adri and all looking really good. Garlic should be fine. Why do you grow it in the polytunnel though? Steve

Leave the garlic for another 6 weeks and it will be fine - in on the shortest, out on the longest  ;) 

Still not much to do here, didn't get chance to fetch more compost so spent some time slug hunting as something had eaten every single one of my celtuce plants overnight  :mad:
