A Peep In The Tunnel
Its all go go go in the poly tunnel
The first of the chillies are on there way, all the peppers and chillies are covered in flowers
Plum tomatoes are swelling, these have set fruit first, the other variety's are now flowering
Chick pea pods are filling up, again there are lots of these and lots more flowers coming.
Alaska peas now ready for picking.
Lots of lettuce
Oca are coming on great
Celery put on lots of growth
Sweetcorn is now waist high
Fennel is starting to bulb up, I am starting to take out the thinning's and adding them to salads.
Yes there is plenty of salad, as produce is being used up I am re-sowing all in short rows, keeping the tunnel producing.
Tonight's dinner was all home produced
More Salad, there was spring onions and radish as well
Chicken, Martin dispatched a cockerel yesterday and this big plate of meat will do several meals and the carcass and skin will be made into stock.
We have had some rain this evening at last with some rumbles of thunder, after another hot day, tomorrow is suppose to be the same.
I have been working on new craft lines they are up on my craft blog, when its too hot in the afternoon to work outside I head down the cabin.
Martin is away again tomorrow after being home for 10 days, it will be strange here without him, we did have a long list of jobs and most have been ticked off and a few others that were not on the list.
Time to turn in now its hot muggy and humid again another restless night ahead.
