Beans Beans

While our Tomatoes and cucumbers are growing steadily in the tunnel, we also have lots of outdoor crops to be planting. Broad beans are a great hardy crop to have, they are lovely with new potatoes and onions in june ;-)

We've been planting them for what seems forever - 6 Kilos - roughly 3,000 of them!


And a few weeks later...


I'm just finishing the tables inside the tunnel, the theory is that it doubles the space on that side of the tunnel: we can grow plants like lettuce that like cooler conditions under the tables and melons on the top of the tables. I'm trying to maximise the use of the space that i've got. And on these cold, windy days I really appreciate this tunnel!
