Wednesday 4 May 2011: Polytunnel 4: May
Gosh, time flies!! Still managing to keep a monthly record of what's happening in the polytunnel - and this month, quite a lot!!
This is what it looked like in previous months:
I ought to be able to do something clever so you can see all the images on one page but I haven't quite managed to work out how to do that yet. Anyway, things are growing - on the left there are broad beans, peas, tomatoes, teeny beetroots and basil and right at the end the vine is bushing out. On the right there are calendula, garlic, rainbow chard, spinach, mixed leaves and rocket.
Edie Puss is not allowed in the polytunnel hence the rather swaggering attitude.
I also found a hummingbird hawkmoth in the tunnel - huge and very loud, I had to put him out twice!
Incredible amounts of rain in the night but today is bright and breezy but the air is ladened with damp. The hair is beyond redemption.
