(40 in total) they should settle in nicely once this wind drops. I have another 40+ plants which will go in next week when I decide on a location.
I have also planted out my first batch of 12 Enorma Runners for my first show on the 13th of August hopefully I have got the timing right .
I also have some prince and Ferrari dwarf bean plants ready to be planted out.
The last of the spuds have now been earthed up
Below is a step by step guide to the method I find works best
First I empty the compost in to a large container,then I add the nutrients.In this case as I am only earthing up I add some Tev 4 (vitax q4) I then mix it up well getting rid of all the lumps.The brown pot in the photo is then filled with the mix.
Then after unrolling the bag to its full size I carefully hold the foliage to one side then add half the pot of compost then I move the foliage to the other side and repeat the process
Job Done 100 bags in total
I planted12 caulis in the tunnel after learning at the Talk in Derby by John Branham that he had tried it with good results so why not give it a try.
Shallots are also getting very near harvesting as I don't want to push my luck by leaving it too long and them starting secondary growth the largest now measure 43mm I will lift at 46mm and they should swell to 50mm when ripening which I will be more than happy with.
Stumps are coming on nicely
