Think that last plant is what they call 'fried egg' plant, (Limnanthes) I might have that wrong!! We love Whitby Lbug. our favourite place and yes you need to be fit to walk around there dont you?

Don`t think my knees would have made that climb Lbug.haven`t been to Whitby for years so nice to get a glimpse.
Looks as if you will get plenty in that poly tunnel and all in place at the right time.

stroller I can get tons in the tunnel, at the moment 15 tomato plants,one kiwi and the start of my sweet peppers,and managed to do a potato sack today too,looks like my grapevine is dead tho,and a weird plant I grew from seed that dad brought back from thailand,I will take a pic and you can take a guess
