Cleared some space today  :D Took a boot load full of plants over to a customers, he said he'd like a few - well now he's got a lot  :lol:

I can actually get in the greenhouse again - think I'll sow some more seeds  ::)

I did the same - I took 18 Tomatoes, 6 Sunflowers, 14 Peppers, 5 Cukes, 3 Gherkins and a tray of nasturtium, a tray of scabious and a tray of cosmos over to a friend.  Moved the same up to my PT staging and came back and planted tray loads of flowers in the greenhouse.  I feel sooooo happy.

Sowed 4 types of courgette , potted on the last of the peppers, divided and potted on the parsley. Put the cucamelons in their final positions, 2 in the top greenhouse and 2 in the bottom. Took the rest of the tomatoes up to the top greenhouse ready to go out, just trying to decided if I should sink some pots or plant direct  :unsure:

Pinched out the side shoots from the arnold tomato and put them in compost to try grafting round #3 and noticed the iznik cuke has some mini-cukes on it  :D

Spent the rest of the day turning the house upside down looking for the casement stay for the window I pinched the auto-opener from - do you think I can find it, can I heck as like !  :mad:

I'm the person the monsters under your bed are hiding from.

Finished constructing my new greenhouse so now I can post :) transferred all my plants from the kitchen windowsills and into the greenhouse (don't worry I've purchased a paraffin heater just incase I need to keep temps up at night). Didn't realise how many tomato and pepper plants I had. The sungold tomatoes are flowering as are the redskin peppers.

Also got mini cukes on the Passandra.  Redness coming on strawberries and lots of flowers on toms, peppers and dare I say it....aubergines.

Won't hold my breath for the Aubs though.  They sound tricky to say the least.

Fed Chillis, Toms, Peppers and Aubergines with Tomorite.  Not sure about it all being too early but the date's recorded so if it wasn't right this time then next year...might be.4

Not sure if Tom feed is any good for Aubs.

Put a wire the full length of the PT tied to the hoops.  Then dangled twine for cukes to grow up.  Looks good but I would have preferred a trellis of some sort.  One string looks so insubstantial.

Spotted my first pepper!!!!

Aji Escabeche.  About 1.5 inches long. I know that some advise taking off the first peppers but how can I? It would be like cutting off my own arm...well not quite but is it really necessary?  There seems to be different advice according to the pepper type too so given I'm a newbie to peppers/chillis I might be doing just the wrong thing by nipping off my first baby....

Anyway, must be doing something more or less right.

Watered.. snaffled the only ripe-ish strawberry and water some more. Moved the vent higher up, as the tomato in front of it was sulking and potted on the last of the toms for the bottom greenhouse. Potted up some of the self set hot lemon peppers from the top greenhouse and put some French beans in modules. Fed the chickens the bolted tatsoi, coriander and lettuce.
