GREENHOUSE

I was much better organised this year with my allotment greenhouse. It is only small, not really perfect but it seems to do the job.

I planted some cucumber plants there and a number of different tomato plants.

They are doing amazingly well, I’m just waiting for the tomatoes to turn red. Once one of them goes, the others will follow.

Another thing I had to do on my plot was to build a new structure for my squashes. I had them climbing up on rather rustic structures last year but the combined effect of strong winds in the autumn and the weight of one of my Zucca da marmelata’s brought the whole thing crashing down.

The new structure is much more sturdy – lower but firmly fixed. It will be there for a few years. The first plants are beginning to climb and some have fruit already. I am watering and feeding almost every day. It will be worth it!
