It’s almost the end of October and I’ve done just about nothing in the garden until yesterday and today. We’re still eating (and will be for a couple of more weeks) our badly misshapen but scrummy tomatoes. I’ve had tomatoes with just about everything but I think my favourite is with a blue cheese omelette. It’s something about the sweetness of the tomatoes and the saltiness of the blue cheese. Mind a ‘polytunnel’ plus chorizo pizza comes a close second!
I sowed these trays of seeds (kale, cabbage, collards and pak choi) before I went off on holiday and my kind neighbour kept them watered. Hopefully, once I’ve finished working in the polytunnels I’ll get these planted out later in the week. This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago and they are really screaming to be in the ground.
I have at last made a start in the polytunnels (not sure why I can’t get motivated at this time of the year?). I’ve lifted all the strawberry plants from the middle of polytunnel number one and transplanted them to the back of both polytunnels that should give me about 100 plants if they all recover from the move. In polytunnel number two I’ve planted broad beans which hopefully will escape the black fly. Tomorrow, I’m hoping to sow the large pile of seeds in polytunnel number one. After that the veggie plot needs tackled!
