i picked one of my beef stake tomatoes and it a fair size. I never gown beef tomatoes before so i don't know how big they can get but i am quite impressed with mine. It weighs 1 KG no wonder my tomatoes plants fell over

My Tomatoes plants were doing really well a little bit slow at ripening but were getting there. Until this weekend they were all on the floor, snapped my plastic/metal lined canes like match sticks and broken the nut what has the tomatoe wire attached to it. They didnt half weigh on when i picked them up though

Hi, i have my 10 x 8 GH slabs and a soil border on one side. personal i prefer slabs it easier to clean and looks more professional 

I wouldnt put Rhubarb inside the GH, they can get quite large and take up valuable space, a rhubarb will survive outside they very hardy.

I love Dahlias so underrated, some beautiful pictures on here 

I got one large tuber and a few grown from seed. some have been a bit battered with the weather but soldiering on. These are my favorite ones

Very high ridge your GH has GardenerWA,  think mine only 1.6 metre or 5.4' if you old than me , better than my old GH though kept hitting my head on the roof.

 Is your GH sheltered from the wind cause with the roof vents the wind keeps trying to snatch them. I only have my Autovent vent on one side now ( east facing ) and manual on the other.
