Our courgettes/zucchini are looking really healthy and we have a few baby courgettes... Just the beginning hopefully of a plentiful harvest as long as we help with the pollination as the bees can't always get into the tunnels and of course we are seeing less and less of our really important natural pollinaters 🐝 🥒 - - - #evesleaves #courgette #zucchini #antioxidants #summerproduce #pollination #depowder #growing #growyourown #polytunnel #seedlings #chemicalfree #sogood #gardening #vegan #vegetarian #gardening #lovegrowing #allotment #eatwell #eatorganic #grownfromseed #gardentotable #healthbenefits #growyourown #healthyfood #savethebees

Feeling quite accomplished! Half the chicken fence is up and I weeded the polytunnel. My hands were filthy and covered in nettle stings, but I just don’t care 😁 The stray cat seems to have found a new favourite spot, which may be problematic later... #cantwealljustgetalong . . . #chickens #hens #cat #catsofinstagram #fence #weeding #polytunnel #growfoodnotlawns #vegetables #vegetablegarden #vegetableplot #garden #gardening #countrylife #rurallife #rural #country #selfsufficiency #growyourown #cork #ireland

Putting on the polyethylene when it's raining isn't the one. Bloody English weather! It did stop thankfully. #chilli #polytunnel

A nod to #britishflowersweek This is the first time in the last 10 days that it’s not been raining when I’ve been home. Lovely to have the weekend off and now even better that the sun has popped out. The last 10 days of gloom and worrying ‘will I have enough flowers for next weekend’ wiped away with 10 minutes sunshine. So rice to feel her warmth on my back 🌞 I think I will sleep well tonight #polytunnel #polytunnellife #britishflowersweek2019 #june #juneweddingflowers #localflowers #seedtostem #fromgardentovase #flowersofinsta #flowerfarmer #mygardentoday #herefordshireflowergrower #grownwithlove #flowersfromthefarm #herefordshirewedding #herefordshire

Just found this little critter in my car. Must have come off the plot. Does anybody have any idea what species he is (and don't say "spider"), or can anybody DM me with where I can find more information about him? . . . #allotment #allotmentlife #growyourown #gardening #kitchengarden #growyourownfood #organic #vegetablegarden #homegrown #allotmentlove #allotmentuk #gyo #ediblegarden #nodig #garden #vegpatch #gardener #allotmentgarden #flowers #veggies #growwhatyoueat #greenthumb #organicgarden #horticulture #vegan #spring #polytunnel_takeover #polytunnel

I was watering the polytunnel last night and found out where all the bees have been sheltering during the rain, having a busy old time snacking on parsley flowers. #bees #polytunnel #parsley #parsleyflowers

Two of my favourite things to grow. I have two courgette plants in the polytunnel that are already monsters, and the three outside have just started to flower 🤦‍♀️ we’ll be drowning in them soon enough

The kids made baz a castle complete with fairy lights, it actually looks very comfortable! They’re now playing with their Siku Farm apparently they’ve jugged all the Ewes in the shed ready for lambing. I’m actually quite jealous because they have a lovely red 90 Landie and Ifor Williams stock trailer with sheep decks!

No kids home and finally time to install the watering-system in the largest of my two polytunnels. I'll begin with a new kind of sprinkler on a spear from @gjordnara and then install the solar driven watering-system from @impecta.se This is going to be such a great help in my polytunnel.

Cat on a hot bed roof? She loves this spot but the melon plant she's sleeping on doesn't so much... The @charles_dowding style hotbed has been brilliant for germinating seeds and has now topped up and planted up with melon, cucumber, aubergine, pepper and tumbling tomato plants... We'll see how that goes... #cat #gardencat #catinthegarden #comfycat #hotbed #instagarden #gardeninspiration #polytunnellife #nodiggarden #slowlivingforlife #gardeninglove #growyourownfood #kitchengardening #thegoodlife #gardens #gardenlove #polytunnel #Charlesdowding #gardening #garden #nodigging #slowliving #growyourown #kitchengarden #nodiggardening #gardeninglife #gardenlife #nodig #sustainableliving

BEETS . . I harvested one of our 4x8 beds of beets this week! I ended up with just under 20 pounds of beets #😍. I sowed seeds from @westcoastseeds in the beginning of april and had them covered to keep the good heat and moisture in it. What a difference covering does vs an uncovered environment. I sowed beets in a different bed just 2 weeks earlier and left it uncovered, those beets are still not ready. I love doing experiments to see what is beneficial for the time of growing season. #beets #beetharvest #harvest #beet #cylinderbeets #sogood #yummy #little gardener #growyourownfood #garden #raisedbed #polytunnel #cage #minigreenhouse #greenthumb

We got tired of using these pegs to hold down our fleece because they damage the material. Now, we're using them to anchor the jute twine for our climbing french beans. Added bonus is that the jute twine is biodegradable and can be easily composted along with the bean stalks.

Just as I was about to build an arc, the summer sun re-appears! The allotment’s looking pretty shambolic but it’s way too wet to think about sorting out the grass or the weeds. It seems like the veg plants have stalled this last couple of weeks but I reckon they’ll explode when summer returns 🙏🙏🙏 #polytunnel #diypolytunnel #allotment #allotmentlife #bristolallotments #30dayswild #urbangardening #kitchengarden #gardenersofinstagram #plantbased #growyourown #gyo #womenwhogrow

The rain has stopped momentarily and the sun is evening starting to come out 😱...my chickens are out and about and I’ve finally got my poor little tomatoes in the polytunnel! I’ve sunk little plant pots next each of them in the hope the water slowly drains down closer to their roots, a little experiment! So pleased it’s Friday after what has felt like a very long week 🌻 #horticulturelife #plot #plot7 #allotment #allotmentsofinstagram #allotmentsuk #chickens #smallholding #hens #tomatoes #polytunnel #rain #sunny #weather #growyourown #love #bliss #gardening #weekend #allthingsallotment

Dill Dukat a popular leaf variety of the herb. Cultivated in the aeroponic system in the polytunnel. Love fresh herbs to add flavour. Trying some dill mustard and a dill vinegar. Not sure about the vinegar - it has to sit on a sunny windowsill for 4 week!! After 2 days it already looks like murky pond water!🤢 . . . #freshherbs #dill #dilldukat #aeroponics #aeroponicgardening #polytunnel #polytunnellife #techhippie #knowyourfood #freshfromthegarden #gyo #growyourownveg #growyourownfood #smallholding #smallholdinglife #homesteading #21stcenturyselfsufficency #soillessfarming #healthyherbs #fullofflavour #fromfieldtoplate #modernfarming #technogarden #urbanfarming

I love this time of year, the greens, the utter chaos, and all the stuff I don't have time to take care of, the sweet smell of flowering Rose's taking over in the garden😊 I have less of a workload now since I started mulching my garden a few years ago, thank you #sarabäckmo on #saraskitchengarden for teaching me this fantastic method. It saves me so much time and energy, I only wish I had known about it 20 years ago. It would have completely changed the way I garden.

Poly tunnel progress....Cucumbers starting to form. Kohlrabi nearly ready. Purslane producing. Strawberry runners being potted up while still attached. My best ever spinach starting to go to seed. It has produced huge dark green leaves. Next batch of dill, lettuce and basil emerging. Carrots have grown very fast under cover - I will definitely be planting them inside again. Peas for pea shoots have won the battle. Celery to be planted out in a week or two. Nice and warm working under cover! #kohlrabi #strawberryrunners #peas #peashoots #spinach #polytunnel #purslane #cucumbers #dill #lettuce #basil #carrots #celery

Nogle gange handler det bare om at åbne munden! -eller i det her tilfælde skrive en seddel og smide i postkassen ved en tom gård nede af vejen. Vi har igennem mange år kørt forbi gården og tænkt, hvad skal de med den polytunnel der er inde midt i et kæmpe krat? Og ej hvis vi bare havde sådan en polytunnel, så kunne vi x,u,z.. Nu er det vores, for manden der ejer gården er en meget ældre herre der ikke kunne magte den mere og derfor bor i et mere moderne hus på den anden side af godset. Han havde samlet på fuchsia 🌸 i sine yngre dage og efter mange års sleben frem og tilbage fra haven og til loftet på hovedhuset, var børn og kone blevet træt af det. De købte derfor en polytunnel til ham engang først i 80’erne og så kunne de slappe af om sommeren mens han var hos sine fuchsiaer i tunnellen. Og samlingen kunne endda ekspandere 👌🏼 Men en nat for mange år siden, kom der 5 m sne og tunnellen kollapsede under vægten. Det var begyndelsen til enden på et fuchsia-eventyr på sydsjællland. Vi har fået lov at tage polytunnellen helt gratis, vi skal bare lige sørge for at alt indmaden er væk, inden vi fjerner den revnede presenning. Opgaven er ikke helt lille. For der er bobleplastik, 1 million gamle urtepotter og visne planter i tørre spagnumklumper, der er plastik der er gået i 1000 stykker og der er flamingo kasser og flamingovægge lige til at smide på genbrugspladsen. Men der er også planteborde af professionel kaliber og der er plantepinde og plantelabels, potter til en hel planteskole og så terrakottapotterne 🧡 Tænk hvor mange steder der ligesom her, har guld stående som man kan bruge, genbruge og gøre nyt igen, helt uden at bruge penge. #polytunnel #andresaffald

Big orders of beets and turnips this week! Ive decided that beets on probably my favourite vegetable to grow. Big chunky seeds make them easy to sow. They generally have great germination rates, they're easy to transplant, from my experience, almost entirely pest free... I've kept these netted as sparrows have a thing for their leaves, but other than that, they are easy-peasy. . Then most of all, the satisfaction of twisting out the largest beet from a multisown clump, knowing that next week there will be a second and a third (and a 4th if you've been a little cheeky and stuck four seeds in a module). They're stunning vegetables, to look at and eat.
