Spent a good few hours at the plot today. The weather was kind as it didn’t rain and was nice and mild.
I had taken a lot of wood to the plot during the week and needed to sort it out into what we needed and what I could give the site for anyone to use.
Once done, I got on with building one of the two cold frames that we had been given.
The first one will go along the length of the greenhouse and we will grow lettuce and spring onions it in grow bags.
Once cleaned and situated correctly, it was time to move on to the fruit cage.
As followers of the blog will know, I had already situated the met posts and 6 of the eight upright posts.
Now was time the add the top bars.
So that’s two thirds of the fruit cage almost completed. There will be mid rails for more support and also support bars in the angles.
Then, we have to decide what fruit we will grow!
All being well, the cage will be completed in the next week and we can start to concentrate of the fruit and not the cage and also on cleaning the greenhouse and planning the seeds to sow!
Exciting times ahead as the growing season will soon be upon us.
Stay tuned folks…..
