We are family of allotmenteers from South Wales in our second year and second plot (gone from half to full size plot)
Tomatoes are coming along. The last photo was taken on 21st April. What a difference in only six weeks.
Plot 29 polytunnel is coming along nicely…
Some shots of the other bed in the tunnel with tomatoes and peppers.
I’m fed up of weeding so the bed on the other side of the polytunnel has a covering of weed proof membrane. The pots are there for watering as they let the water go straight to the roots. As well as keeping the weeds at bay the membrane should also help to warm the soil up quicker (black is better for thermal absorption) and keep the moisture in the soil (through reduced evaporation).
The comfrey is coming along nicely so should have ample amounts of comfrey tea as a feed for our tomatoes and peppers. As mentioned yesterday we put in another 15 seedlings in this bed.
