Well yet again I have left months between blog updates, so where to start after such a gap?
Well Shane was building a little poly tunel. He got a little help from some friends and it turned into quite an interesting greenhouse type affair.
The Greenhouse taking shape.
The begining of August and everything is blooming.
So far we have had courgettes and strawberries oh and a few green peppers. The corn is almost ready. The tomatoes are just beginging to ripen, but we have had one type which have had some kind of blight and have gone bad on the plant before they got anyware near ripe. The chap at the Co op said it was some kind of desiese that was in them this year. So that was a dissapointment, but the little cherry tomatoes are coming through now.
Actually I started this update a few weeks ago at the begining og August and didn't finish it. Now we are at the begining of September and have loads of cherry toms and have had lots of courgettes from the two plants. All in all very good. the green tomatoes we are picking before they turn bad and have been making chutney...very Mrs Beaton!
We have had a very nice summer all told. the grass has jept growing steadily because of the nice mix of suna dn rain and not being too hot.
Having said that the last few days have been craxzy hot and humid. Yesterday September 2 was 41 degrees with the humidex. Actual temperature 33 dgrees. Undeard of for September.
But tomorrow we have the prospect of hurricain Earl passing through.
So we are expecting lashings of rain and very high winds. we will see what happens.
