Synopsis:

August 2008

New cover increases our output, but blight strikes

 


Our polytunnel has been producing well this year, thanks to some imaginative planting and regular care. We have enjoyed meal after meal of fresh vegetables (to accompany our pork and lamb), and hope it will continue through the colder seasons too.

Our tomato crop started well with some lovely red specimens (we have had problems with pounds of tomatoes staying green and being used for chutney), but unfortunately our harvest was cut quite short by blight.

Potatoes also suffered, but thankfully not until we had eaten our way through most of them.

The new cover has definitely made a difference to the ambient temperature in the tunnel, and this is almost certainly helping with the increased yield.
