So yesterday I harvested my xmas potatoes from the polytunnel, had they been grown outside the frost would have killed them ages ago so although not a big harvest some is better than none😉 Also harvested some carrots, swede, parsnips, Kohlrabi and beetroot too. Then today whilst it was raining I spent 4.5 hours down the allotment in the polytunnel potting up seedlings so no wasted day for me. Then home to cook some vegan pasties with all of the fresh ingredients from the plot.💪🏾🥕🍠 Delicious #mymonthontheplot #myotherlife #myplot #myhaven #allotment #allotmentlife #potatoes #veganfood #vegan #organic #growyourown #growwhatyoueat #fruitandveg #freshlypicked #foodporn #Delicious #nutritious #polytunnel #rain #uk #presenter #celebritytrainer

With this slightly nibbled spicy winter salad from the polytunnel I’m just clinging on to year round harvests!

#tomatoesnottogrow Next up on tomatoes I won’t grow again are San Marzano. I’m not saying they’re a bad tomato, they’re just not for me. I think they are a “paste” tomato which means they’re great for making sauces etc but as for eating fresh I didn’t like them. They have that mushy, soft texture that I hate in a tomato. I like my tomatoes to be all rounders in that they are equally nice to eat raw or cooked. I found these had very little flavour. So it’s a no from me on this one. #tomatoes #growyourown #growyourownfood #polytunnel #allotment #ediblegarden #veggiegarden #sustainableliving #sustainablefood #shesowsseeds

Shadecloth removal is most efficient when the shadecloth is dry. After all, they are ~5,000 sq.ft. pieces of fabric that are quite heavy when wet. As is everything else on our wasabi farm, this task is performed by hand. In this case, with a hammer, needle nose and @oeknives pocketknife. This view was so striking that I wanted to share the sunset with you all. (And show you the highly technical tool set used!) #wasabi #OregonCoastWasabi #FreshHotReal #freshwasabi #TheWasabiAmbassador #polytunnel #greenhousegrowing

#tomatoesnottogrow You always hear people talk about their #gyo triumphs but you very rarely hear people talk about the things they won’t be growing again and the reasons why. I grew 23 varieties of tomatoes this year and of that 23 I think at a push I’d grow 6 of them again. For most of us space is at a premium so it can be very annoying to waste space on something that’s not worth it. Similarly time is also very precious and it can be a right head melter to spend months tending to something for you to end up hating it. So with all that in mind I’m going to be posting the varieties I won’t be growing again and the reasons why. First up is Current Sweet Pea. Tomatoes the size of red currents that are meant to be very sweet and tasty. Well the tomatoes might be small but the plants ain’t! The top picture is from the site I got the seeds from, the green toms on the blue background are ones I grew. The reason I have no photo of my own ripe ones is I had to rip all the plants out before any more had ripened. They absolutely took over! As you can see from the bottom right picture. They wrapped themselves around the rest of the plants and were really starting to smoother everything. It was an impossible task to try keep them cut back and from taking over. So considering the time, water, effort and space they were taking up I didn’t think they were worth it. They didn’t even taste that good tbh. I’ll be posting about this all week so keep an eye out if tomatoes are your thing. I’m interested to hear others opinions on varieties not to grow so if your talking about the subject use #tomatoesnottogrow so I can find ya! #polytunnel #polytunnellife #tomatogrowing #tomatoes #growyourown #growyourownfood #ediblegarden #veggiegarden #veggiepatch #allotment #allotmentlife #girlswhogrow #sustainableliving #polytunnelofdreams #polytunneljungle #shesowsseeds

Time to sow some broad beans. After hunting through my seed box to see what I could sow over Autumn/Winter these are what I’ve found. The variety is Bunyards exhibition and can be sown from October onwards. I’ve never really sown anything at this time of year before so we’ll see how these go. Excited!! . . . . #broadbeans #polytunnel #allotment #allotmentuk #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #thegoodlife #growyourown #growyourownfood #gyo #growyourownveggies #selfsufficient #growfoodnotlawns #garden #vegetarian #vegan #gardening #kitchengarden #womenwhogrow #organic #lancashire #homegrown #veggiegarden #gardenersofinstagram

S•P•I•N•D•L•E•W•O•O•D - Eurjymus Europaues. This morning @iamcatmandoo and I spent a wonderful morning around my Aunties, who as I’ve said before has the dreamiest garden and allotment ever!! We spent time enjoying my homemade pear chutney with cheese, GF cake (of course!) and exploring the garden. A lovely Wren has made a nest in the poly tunnel for winter which was great to see. Such wildlife and a huge selection of flowers, fruits and veggies growing. The Salvias are spectacular, as is the lime tree but my particular favourite was this beautiful spindle tree. It’s glorious to see such vibrant pinks and oranges on these dreary autumn days. I can’t wait to get myself one of these for my own garden next year. I think it’ll look spectacular against our wooden fence in the courtyard.. Now to convince the husband of mine! Over and out this beautiful Saturday. Have a wonderful evening. #autumn #autumndays #brightsky #briskweather #familyday #pearchutney #teaandcake #aunty #neice #gardenofdreams #sobeautiful #polytunnel #allotment #spindle #brightpink #brightorange #autumncolours #lovelytosee

Productieve dagen. Zaailingen van aantal inheemse vaste planten verspeend (ik hoop dat de bijen er straks net zo blij mee zijn als ik 🐝🌸) eindelijk het geraamte van mijn nieuwe tunnelkas opgezet en 17 kratten vol met dahlia-knollen (schoon en gesplitst). Geen zorgen, voor mij is het archiveringsysteem duidelijk 😅! ••• Productive days. Transplanted seedlings of some native perannual plants (I hope the bees will be pleased as much as I am 🐝🌸), finally built up the construction of my new polytunnel and stored 17 crates of dahlia-tubers (clean and divided). Don’t worry, to me this archive-systeem is quite clear! #bloemenoogst #schonebloemen #lekkerbezig #productive #nativeplants #inheems #dahlia #polytunnel #happythankyoumoreplease

Växthuset tackar för i år med dessa höstbilder. Tyvärr blir det inga fler säsonger på odlingslotten i Lund, så växthuset måste tyvärr monteras ner. Förhoppningsvis sätter jag upp det på någon annan plats nästa säsong. ENG: The greenhouse season in Sweden is over. This will be the last season on my small piece of soil in Lund, so the greenhouse needs to be mounted down. Hopefully I will have somewhere to put it before the next season starts. #growing #greenhouse #polytunnel #agriculture #autumn #tomatoes #gardening #garden #tomato #diy #doityourself #planting #odling #växthus #jordbruk #trädgård #grönsak #grönsaker #vegetables #grönsaksodling #gördetsjälv #självförsörjning #självhushållning #selfsufficiency #selfsufficient

So proud to manage to grow such a huge cauliflower..ive had good years and bad years growing caulis. Some grow brilliantly and have great big heads and then sometimes they have loads of folage and very little in the middle... That's gardening for you 😊 - - #evesleaves #huge #cauliflower #goodyear #vegetables #trialanderror #throwbacktime #polytunnel #gyo #vegan #eatyourgreens #foophotography #instafood #instagood #instaveg #vegplot #instavegetarian #chemicalfree #food #vegetablegarden #eatwell #eatgood #eatfresh #eathealthy #eatwellbewell

Some late season producing from #polytunnel. Peppers (capiscum), aubergines, carrots and popcorn. The popcorn was actually grown outside the tunnel from popping corn, not certified seed but i am not sure it is worth the effort. The aubergine and Peppers plants are now very frost bitten and sad looking. Next years #growyourown #selfsufficient #vegetables will have to be much better planning if we are to archive #thegoodlife

*Ahem... clears throat... best David Attenborough voice* -Gnomes of the world: Episode 3- Good afternoon and welcome to this weeks episode of “Gnomes of the world”. This week we are featuring Nudist Gnomes, or Nudie Gnomes as they like to be known. Gnome watchers are divided when it comes to the classification of Nudie Gnomes. Some believe they are their own species where as others believe they can be from any species of gnome, they just are specimens who choose to forego clothing. What we do know is that unlike their more elusive cousins, the Polytunnel Gnomes and the Houseplant Gnomes, Nudie Gnomes want to be seen. They could be described as exhibitionists. You do not need to look for subtle signs of their inhabitance, you will know they’re there. They say a picture paints a thousand words, well this picture didn’t need to as the subject, Tropical Dave the Nudie Gnome was more than happy to tell us about himself “I’m just like any Gnome, I like Pina Colada’s and getting caught in the rain. I’m not much into health food, I am into champagne” our research team closely observed Tropical Dave and their report stated he was more into “drinking whatever was left over by the Polytunnel Gnomes, standing under watering cans and taking bites from whatever tomatoes he could reach. If you have a Nudie Gnome take residence with you there’s no need to worry as they usually move in search of finer weather. But if they look like they are there to stay the most humane thing is to catch and release. Set up a trap using a Pina Colada as bait then release them somewhere warm such as the heated glasshouse of your National Botanic gardens. On next weeks episode we will be discussing the Inspector Gnomes. Tune in! #gnome #gardengnome #nudiegnome #polytunnelgnome #houseplantgnome #bananatree #gnomesoftheworld #polytunnel #growyourown #growyourownfood #tropical #itsgonnabetropic #tropicaldave #naturephotography #naturalworld #gnomesofinstagram #davidattenborough #shesowsseeds

New signs if life from one of my figs which I’ve brought into the polytunnel. I know not why because it’s blooming freezing in there as well! Anyway I’m going to be planting this one next year as it’s not happy in its pot. I’ll plant it next to the other three larger ones I’ve got to keep each other company in the figgery...Now that is a good word. 😂 . . . . . #fig #figtree #allotment #polytunnel #allotmentuk #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #thegoodlife #growyourown #growyourownfood #gyo #growyourownveggies #selfsufficient #growfoodnotlawns #garden #vegetarian #vegan #gardening #kitchengarden #womenwhogrow #organic #lancashire #homegrown #veggiegarden #gardenersofinstagram

Red Russian kale is doing SO well under the hoop tunnels. It is definitely hardier and that's why I chose it to continue growing all winter❄🌬 under the tunnel's protection. I snipped some leaves as harvest this morning. I am not expecting that to grow back because of shortening daylight growing hours, but there is more where that came from.💕🌱
