First the sand and cement.. the cat came to have a look at proceedings:
No going back now, the base is well and truly in place:
The next step is the Krypton Factor piecing together of the frame before the glass goes in… watch this space!
I’m missing my little plastic greenhouse at the moment as I’m running out of room for all my seedlings. Hopefully we will see some progress with the new greenhouse soon as I need it! Today’s activities included repotting some sorry looking cauliflower seedlings which have
somehow survived since last October. I put some out in a raised bed yesterday but still have a lot of plants to find a home for if they start to thrive in their new pots.
Sowed another pot of coriander plus some rocket and mixed salad leaves and then got a bit carried away with a small seed tray of lobelia, another of antirrhinum and some pots with 4 sweet peas in each and another couple of nasturtium in pots.
Then some tidying up, sorting out some empty pots and trays and thinking about what to grow next – before it was time for a lovely BBQ, what a great Sunday.
Cucumbers were coming on nicely – or so I thought for a nano-second before realising that these had appeared overnight – my dear other half had tied some mini cucumbers to the plants to make me think my green fingers really were magical. Did make me laugh though and we did eventually have home grown cucumbers to eat.
Last year’s plastic greenhouse didn’t survive but this one was a very cheap replacement – £10 from Asda!
No idea what happened here…
Peppers, tomatoes, cucumber, rocket – it was all going on here. This little temporary greenhouse was a fantastic buy, cheap and cheerful but made all the difference to the survival of my experiments!
Look how neat it was! This is when the allotment at the bottom of the garden started to take shape. Of course I should have started blogging it then..
