The corner of the polytunnel is a small part of the garden that I have been trying to sort out for weeks but it has always got pushed to the bottom of my lists as other more urgent work took priority or it was far too hot to work under plastic ... until today that is. Today I was determined to clear the encroaching brambles once and for all, not least because I want to sow some seeds and the packets I need were buried somewhere in amongst those thorns.
This is what I started with this morning:
And this is how it looks now:
I found the seeds so tomorrow I shall be able to sow Chard, Spinach, Oriental Leaves, Spring Cabbage, Pak Choi and Turnips. Whilst some vegetable outside have suffered because of the wet weather the polytunnel has done well this year and so here's hoping these August sowings will keep us fed on into the Winter.
