Tomatoes are in flower and the polytunnel is starting to smell like papas old green house, im sure he would be proud.

The basil is massive, we are going to make some pesto, today we got loads of different types of basil to try out, this one seems to like the poly tunnel...smells lush too

This is an obergien flower they are doing really well, and will need staking soon. There seems to be loads of flowers, really nice colour.

The first chilli this is a bishops hat....i think....very hot.....i think...we will have to see.

The baby chilly plants are getting a bit thicker...i dont really know what type these are but they should be long and red.

I have 3 cucombers, 2 in a grow bag and one in the ground, 1 in the grow bag is massive, one is tiny, the one in the ground is medium sized, I have built a little trelis for it to build round, and the cucombers havewond their tendrill around them already.they have little tiny cucumbers comming already.

normal view from the top rubarb is doing my head in now, i want to cut it down there is only so much rubarb crumble you can eat in a year. maybe i can distill it ;)

Lets see how this changes over the next few weeks, Roy from next door helped me cut the side shots from the tomatoes today i get the feeling that he misses them a bit his green house blew down last year i hope our polu tunnel lasts a bit longer
these are the chillies, peppers, obergienes its like our own personal italy

We have loads of different tomates
  • gardeners delight
  • romania
  • yellow
  • secillia
  • etc
  • ect
  • tce ......i think i will have lots of tomatoes.....right at the end is cucomber.

TA DA...we are very proud of our little shak we decided to put put it up on the windest day of the year, fritha bearly blew away a couple of times, and i got cramp from using the staple gun to much...and bumpted my head about 20 times..but it was worth it.

I think the heat might be getting to me

Fritha looks like shes just had a really nice sweet...either that or shes asleep....frith hope that she might grow a bit in the poly tunnel.

whats this space i dont know what im going to do with all my food in september.
