Greenhouse update

This is just a short update and by no means comprehensive on where we are with the greenhouse. Much of what we planted earlier this year as seeds has already been planted out: red cabbages, sweet peas, brussel sprouts, gherkins and courgettes.

There is still plenty in the greenhouse. The nasturtiums above were planted as seeds and they have all germinated. These are being grown not for display but as food. The leaves and flowers can be eaten and the seeds can be pickled, a bit like capers.

We have also bought pepper, tomatoe and aubergine seedlings (the peppers are pictured above). These will all remain in the greenhouse, as will the cucumbers we have grown from seeds.

Also growing from seeds are sweet corn. They will be planted out, and will go onto bed 4 (most of which has not yet been dug over - that is a big job coming up.)
