Green house with plastic cover blew down and messed up all my seeds I had just put out there last month. So brought everything inside again. I am now planning on using the two halves of the green house as stagings without any cover. That means I will have 12 shelves altogether.
So far I have growing in various stages, 8 herbs, 6 types of squash, courgette, zuchini, loads of lettuce, sweetcorn, strawberries, patipans and white, black and red currants and a blueberry.
Fruit is outside with potatoes and carrots. The rest is in my lounge in front of the window, it is like a green house in there and the ones still germinating are in the kitchen.
I have dug a bed round two sides of the grass so far and two sides to go. I made a square patch for the carrots and other veg.
Still havent got anything up on the open side of the garden yet. Everything is covered in pony droppings too and have some in buckets full of rainwater for watering with later.
No pics yet as not much in the garden and fruit trees just sticks. Put sweet peas and poppys in the garden for colour and peas and other seeds just arrived.
I have 30 to 60 of each type and expecting at least half not to grow but may still end up with an excess! I hope! Having salad sandwiches for lunch with my lettuce everyday. So at least something is working well.
