high winds and greenhouses

Posted: 26/10/2013 at 19:57

...I also have a wind tunnel and I shut the whole lot up... I don't know if it's the best thing to do but it's what I feel safer with...I'm afraid something will blow out otherwise..

^...that's 'Spartan'....very nice too, isn't it?... right off the tree is best.... I find the shop ones don't taste as nice, having been left to hang around a bit...rather like Cox in that way, I find...

...now I want another one...

...that apple of Fairygirl's looks like one I used to grow in my last garden called 'Spartan'... I grew it not only for it's flavour but because of that rich dark colour...it's self fertile and ripens at this time of year.... should be some in the shops soon... the flesh should be pure white...if not, then it's something else..

What's the best way to shade a greenhouse?

..I've used that paint stuff on the outside...it's very useful, easy to apply and easy to wipe off...you can do just selected panes if you wish... however, I don't recommend it if growing produce, like tomatoes, as they need all the sun....

...ooh..I'd love to go to town on that one.... a fine cosy garden in prospect.... get rid of the weeds..some might advocate using chemicals here..but I just dig it all out... then see what you've got left and visit the garden centre.... I do love walls...grow nice things on that with some support...

...huge monster growing up in the middle of that wall...lol... no idea what it is...
