  1. pressure washing and rubbers

    by , 27-07-2009 at 04:48 PM
    I've just given the greenhouse a blast over with the pressure washer and so much gunk came out of the channels not sure why I even bothered with the scrubbing brush the other day.

    After that I gave the rubber thingies a wipe over then started to replace them, they seem to be going back in easy enough probably because they've got nice and soft after being left on the trailer tent cover.
  2. The rain is such a pain.

    The last of the peas have been picked, and the 1st of the French Climbing bean have been picked, cooked and eaten.

    Difficult to get into the greenhouse due to all the Cucumber foliage and burgening tomato plants, however the average temp at the moment is quite cool so I am having to shut the greenhouse up at night.!

    I cannot mow the lawn due to persistent rain today most of day. It's so long now i have to attach a tether to the cat when it goes out.!
  3. A greenhouse at last

    by , 24-07-2009 at 03:17 PM
    Yesterday my next door neighbour GAVE me a greenhouse So no more growing my toms in the kitchen window and filling the rest of the window sills with seedlings.

    I spent the day scrubbing the moss and stuff of the frame, I think it will need a pressure washer to get the all the gunk out the nooks and crannies.

    There's a lot to do even before we get the base made, like moving a car that's been stood for 12 years

  4. Onion and over...

    by , 21-07-2009 at 08:21 PM
    Picked plenty more peas tonight also the 1st crop of French Climbing Bean 'Sultana'.

    Whilst doing that I decided to pull a few early onions for drying and found they where just sitting in the soil, all roots apparently rotting, so I pulled the lot up, washed them and left them on the greenhouse floor to dry.

    All this rain has apparently been quite a bad thing for them.

    This is my first time so here goes....
    Have only started gardening this year, need advice on Green Manure and if I do that for this Autumn do I need to use chicken manure pellets too?
