A couple of days ago, on the hottest day of the year so far, Lloyd and I decided to shovel over a tonne of topsoil and around half a tonne of wee stones into the greenhouse. The pathway is so cute, we even got little stepping stones for it. We almost passed out with the heat and humidity, but it was worth it! We wanted to get it done as Simon and Alison were coming over for dinner and we thought it would be nice for them to see that all their hard work wasn't in vain!
The original grass had all died back and we put around 30cm of new soil on top of it to make the growing beds raised.
It looks amazing. Amazing, but bare!
These are some of the chillies I've got in so far. In front of them where the pebbles are is a space for a potting table. I'm having one made to measure to fit in the space perfectly.
There's also some very tiny basil plants and 4 tomatoes. Today, I even managed to find 2 habanero chilli plants for Lloyd. Man, they're difficult to get a hold of!
So, all that's left to plant are perhaps some different types of lettuce. This year is going to be a total experiment. It'll also be interesting to see if the greenhouse tomatoes catch up with the outdoor ones.
