GH2 Spring




GH2 = 4 mandarin, 2 yuzu, 2 lime, 2 olive, 2 tamarillo, 1 passionfruit, 2 cucumber,
4 strawberry, 1 lavendar, 1 dwarf peach, 1 elderberry, 1 fig, 1 locquat, 2 banana, LOTs of lettuce
plus lots of seedlings; shiso, mizuna, lettuce, radish etc



(i dug this plot over during winter, added fertliser and a month or so ago I decided to grow rhubarb. I bought four rhubarb plants, small but all looked sturdy. Planted them all, top right plant just took off & is growing like crazy, bottom right slower to start but also doing very well, top left is dead, bottom left is stunted & very slow growing. Moral of the story? Plant multiple seedlings/ideas so the ones with strong genetics and roots reveal themselves… but don’t give up on the slow developers!)




(peas, beetroot, silver beet… I used to think peas were a summer crop – plant them in spring & eat them in summer… but I’d buy six or ten seedlings and get barely enough peas to eat – most got eaten raw in the garden. So this year I bought seed and planted lots in the greenhouse during winter, and eventually maybe 50 or 60 seedlings out into this garden, result: LOTS of delicious super crunchy fresh peas!)



GH1 = 22 tomato plants on the left, with basil and marigolds… will become a forest in next 2 months!
2 blueberry, 1 dwarf bamboo & cactii etc on right


temperature in greenhouse is about 10 degrees C warmer than outside…
so a crappy grey Friday Ext = 12deg C, interior = 25deg C
