Stuck in the greenhouse in a storm

We have discovered another benefit of having a greenhouse: shelter! I was weeding bed 4 a few minutes ago and then suddenly the skies opened and the rains came down! So a headed for the greenhouse where I am now.

At least the allotment gets a welcome watering, though it did so yesterday as well. And the water butts will get filled up as well.

So, I thought I would take this opportunity to give you a blog tour of the greenhouse.

Pumpkin seeds were planted on 10th but not get germinating. We have 6 seeds planted. Apparently, once they are growing and planted out, they use up lots of water, so we're only doing a small number.

29 sweet corn seeds were planted a couple of weeks ago and there are doing very well.

I repotted the tomatoes last week so no further news on them. Likewise the peppers and aubergines.

5 cucumbers are growing well. One tray of celeriac is doing well. Coriander seeds are planted but doiing nothing yet.

So greenhouse news generally is good.
