beetroot - What's wrong

Posted: 11/09/2012 at 13:57

My carrots and spring onions did not appear. Beetroot was from a second attempt at getting a crop - sowd them in modules first and seemed to have worked

Unfortunately my cluster of newts have gone. (cluster sounded like a good collective noun for them) I went out armed with camera etc but I guess I disturbed them too much when i found them. Near the area I was clearing is a wood pile and some old shelving. They could well have gone ther so I am not doing anything to that patch.

I did learn that when you touch them it is best to have damp hands

What a great photo

Just cut into this beetroot for a BBQ tonight and thought - Not normal - seed was Boltardy and so far non of others are showing this. Is it a virus? Something else?

 I haven't put a photo on forum before. Surprised how easy it was

Bought my greenhouse from Greenhouse had it delivered last year. It's the one they call Hercules 8x10 - self opening roof vents (2), 2 louvres, hangigng basket rail, guttering and down pipe all included. Think its about £ 1000 now but if you went to a show - I went to Malvern Autumn - I got  a really good deal.

They will also store it until you are ready for it

Good after sales service too. My housing (cheap) collapsed and broke one of the louvres - recevied replacement within 3 days

I have my greenhouse on a solid concrtete block - not ideal but my ancient previous one in a previous home had a path down the middle and i found it very unsatisfactory for what I wanted todo.

Thanks for web site -no pictures though- however went onto Google images and found they are smooth or common newts. Handle with damp hands. still don't know why they were in my garden - no water. Still we have had rather a damp summer. Now going out to dampen area as disturbance yesterday before i found them has left their plastic a bit exposed.
