Do you recall in Update 3, I’d added to my vegetable list…
Not able to get any baby plants, I decided to attempt to grow tomatoes from seed, in addition to my existing vegetables. Well they’ve all sprouted nicely – I carefully took the tray outside to get a decent shot and then returned them to the warmth of indoors for now.
I have been carefully considering what I’ve so far spent on various bits and pieces and what I’ve been fortunate enough to already have to hand. However, with so many seedlings and limited ideal room indoors, decided this next purchase would be very worthwhile.
I did mention in the last update about a new purchase… and after some delay, yes my small greenhouse finally arrived! … I was a little excited 🙂
Last Saturday in the very warm sunshine, I followed the assembly instructions carefully, but not before laying all the pieces out to show you the task I had ahead of me…
… the assembled greenhouse… yes it stands up all on its own and there were no bits left over at the end! This has been placed at the back of the sheltered sunny spot, where it will get some protection from the elements.
To date, I’ve purchased the initial seeds for all the vegetables, two large pots for courgettes, Tomorite and this greenhouse. Everything else – soil, compost, wire mesh, various size pots, labels, trays, old cloche, wooden tray, stakes, potato grow bags (will be used for the tomato plants) and trusty watering can! – it’s quite surprising what you can find.
A quick update on the raspberry and blueberry plants – they continue to grow well in their sunny spot. The middle pot with two new blueberry plants, may take a while to spring to life, but I’m hopeful.
Next update… the greenhouse gets christened, the salad leaves are nearly ready to eat and more delicate surgery for the tomato seedlings.
