The Triffids

The greenhouse still isn’t finished. We went out and priced up the glass and plastic replacement panes and decided we couldn’t afford to do it just yet. We used what glass we had to glaze the walls and used netting on the roof and doorway. to be continued…


When I looked into the lean to it was like The Day of The Triffids so I took each plant out one at a time and removed side shoots and some of the bigger lower leaves from the tomatoes, tied the main stalk to a cane, gave it a good water then put nine of them into the new greenhouse. This meant I was able to pot on more Aubergines and Peppers and put them in the lean to. It was hot and tiring work but very satisfying to see it looking so tidy. We even had tiny tomatoes forming.
