Mesh



Finally managed to get some of the beds covered with mesh. On the Carrot bed I have used Enviromesh which is supposed to keep out the Carrot fly fingers crossed it works. There have been mixed fortunes with carrot germination with nearly all the long carrots now through but only a third of the stumps have germinated the failures were all re sown before the mesh was fixed its a matter of wait and see what happens.




The other beds have been covered with builders mesh using water pipe to support it. These will be the Brassica beds and the mesh will hopefully keep the butterfly's out, the caterpillars made a mess of the cabbages last year, hopefully this will avoid a repeat performance.
