What a fantastic day Ive had in my tunnels today. This is such a busy and exciting time of year. Still sowing, growing and harvesting so many vegetables. I cant believe how lucky ive been with my veg this year (not that I’ve had an unlucky year!) but this year I’ve a bumper crop of EVERYTHING, and most of my veg has been trouble free. The tomatoes and the salad are the only fruit/veg that I have had problems with this year, tomatoes with botrytis and my lettuce and a few cabbages with the white cabbage moth/butterfly. I have never seen so many caterpillars as I have had this year, maybe its something to do with the warm weather we experienced a few weeks ago.
Anyway I have been getting bumper crops now for a good few weeks which really gives you that real ‘feel good factor’. Today I made up some great veggie boxes for some very lucky peeps. They were all delighted with their goodies 🙂
Along with the harvesting today I managed to sow a few seeds for overwintering vegetables. I have sown lettuce, radish, pak choi and spinach today. Also potted on some of the cauliflowers and brussel sprouts into new pots as I have no room in the tunnels yet and don’t want them to get pot bound.
Lots more potting on and sowing to do tomorrow………Oh and lots of weeding 😦
