The greenhouse is starting to look busy. I removed all cloches yesterday, last year I lost most of my tomatoes to a late frost in April so it makes me a bit nervous, but as long as I keep an eye on the weather it should be fine.
Recently planted are:
Melon ‘Edonis’ – In Greenhouse
Carrote ‘Sytan‘ – Direct
Broccoli ‘Red Arrow’, ‘Rudolph’ & Late Purple – In Greenhouse (to go in after garlic lifted)
Kai Lan – In Greenhouse
Tegates planted in the greenhouse to keep greenfly off the tomatoes
Lettuce ‘Reine de Glace’ & Green Oak Leaf’ – direct in apple crates
Salad leaf ‘Mibuna’ & ‘Mustard Red Frills’ – direct in apple crates
Cress ‘Bubbles’ – in Greenhouse
Beetroot ‘Pronto’ & ‘Burpees Golden’ – second sowing in gutters to give them a good start.
Sweetcorn ‘Sweet Nugget’ for a Three Sisters Planting bed – in Greenhouse (they don’t like root disturbance so in big pots or coil pots)
Squash ‘Turk’s Turban’, ‘Butternut Harrier F1’, ‘Sweet Dumpling’, ‘Butternut’, ‘Crown Prince’ & ‘Gem/Rolet’ – in Greenhouse
I also netted the ‘roots’ bed after sowing carrots to keep the carrot fly off with Enviromesh. and watered in the first of three lots of Slug Nematodes to keep the slugs under control, and some Ant Nematodes as we have an excess of ants nests, especially red ants.
