In the polytunnel this week
It has been all change in PT1, with the soil in both beds now enriched with compost and Blood- Fish & Bone, tomatoes and peppers planted, plus the
Malabar Spinach, Emir Melons and Diva Cucumbers planted by their support nets. As aways, it has been a squeeze to ift everything in, but I have tried really hard not to plant things too close together so give them the best chance to crop well.
contraption is fleece over a large cloche frame, to protect the pepper plants from cold nights for just a little while longer, in the hope that they don't stop growing now they are not in the cosy greenhouse at home.
Tomatoes: Ox Heart, Black Cherry,
San Marzano, Cyril's Choice, Country Taste, Apero, Super Marmande, plus four from my Son in Law which as yet are unidentifed but all different varieties... once they fruit he will be able to tell me what they are
Peppers: Marconi Long Red, Kings Mixed
Chillies: Dedo de Mocha, Cherry Bomb (plus more to follow from my daughter, that will be grown in large pots at home.. more about these next week)
As well as the lettuce and radishes already mentioned, I have sown a row of Pak
Choi and one of Choi Sum, all of which have already germinated. Not grown Choi Sum before, so lookng forward to something different
