The beginning of summer and everything is growing at speed and particularly in the greenhouse where the tomatoes are heading for the roof and it looks like a bumper crop is well on the way.
The chillies are starting to flower although the plants themselves have a long way to go and a long spell of settled warm weather will see them outside the greenhouse, lined up against the south facing wall that radiates warmth well into the night. A chilli microclimate you could say.
Plans are in hand for a second greenhouse so that we have more space and can get further into growing a proper crops of aubergine, okra and capsicum.
The season of plenty is really under way now.
