Productive Evenings - Greenhouse Design & Getting Tidied

The weather has been crazy hot after a very slow and cold start to the year.  We've seen in the longest day/shortest night now that we're officially in to summer.  The evenings are long and not much cooler than the day time however we have so much to do that needs must.

Steven has been busy clearing the space at the back of the greenhouse.  This is a climbing plant, not sure what variety, that takes over very quickly.  It's stopping a lot of light in the back corner of the greenhouse so clearing it will offer big benefits.  The sun was going down as he finished the task and it was a beautiful night.  




Over the last week, we have worked very hard to get the greenhouse in to a place we are happy with.  Up until now, we have used pots in there every year to grow tomatoes and so on.  This is very time consuming for watering and things quicky dry out.  We've cleared the back greenhouse out and have put raised beds in there - much easier for watering so I hope for a bountiful crop this year!


The contents of the greenhouse were moved to the shed, to tidy at a later date.  Something I've been putting off!  I've finally got round to clearing it out and I am so pleased that it is a useable space again.  I hated not being able to use it, almost as much as tidying it out!


We finally then got some rain.  It didn't last long, but it certainly let itself be known when it was here.  The pigs will make short work of their new ground now it's a bit wet again.
