We have just looked back at our photos from a year ago and they are very similar to those we have taken this week. The thing is, a year is plenty long enough to forget so we can go round marvelling at new things.
One thing we do remember from year to year is the challenge of finding space for all the tomato plants we want to grow on. We sow loads of seeds and then find it hard not to find a home for every plant.
Today we stripped the greenhouse of its benches in order to make tomato space
Having made progress with polytunnel Zenith since last year
We have room for more tomatoes
as well as peas
and sweet peas
(Outside we now have the Welsh French Beans:)
In the other polytunnel
the hotbed earlier used for germination now hosts these plants
germinated from supermarket bought tomatoes.
Other sights that have made us exclaim at something new (at least since last year)
We end a day which is just like before but different in every way.

Lovely memories post! While we muddle through on producing veg, you are so organised. Our attention to the Glamping site has taken priority. How do you cope with the weeds organically? I have to choose between quilting and nettling these days.
Ps… will you make it this weekend?
Lovely photos, what is your defence around the Welsh beans ???
It is bran. The idea is that the slugs reach the bran barrier, gorge themselves on it. As the bran is dry it uses up their water content (I think) and they expire. Maybe does not work so well after rain. It does seem to be helping.
