Just want to send a big thank you to the generous people who donated funds and helped me purchase Tim Marshall’s great Organic Gardener book , some shelving (second hand) and water barrels for my green house. I am now attempting to grow tomatoes, zucchini, strawberries and a Banana through winter. Will keep you posted. So far so good.
The barrels are filled with water and act as thermal sinks that radiate heat after the sun has gone down. I sit my seedling trays over the open barrel as the warm air rises and keeps them cosy.
I have also become part time carer to a dog my neighbour is minding indefinitely. Molly is a sweetie and crazy that she is almost the image of my dear recently deceased Fin. I am giving her training intensives when she visits …. she loves it.
