Omelettes are my go-to for lunch with a 18 month old. Leftover cooked greens are perfect when chucked into a pan with some eggs and cooked until curling at the edges. I serve mine with sauerkraut always 👌Roo takes his in finger sized strips with a side of yoghurt for dunking. Today’s omelette is filled with peas and feta and a little basil... yummm! What are you having for lunch today? . . . #natureandnourish #farmerswife #homesteading #aseasonalyear #frommygarden #smallholding #pocketofslow #farmlife #rurallife #thegoodlife #ethicalliving #simplethingsmadebeautiful #zerowasteliving #everydaymagic #onmykitchentable #greenfingers #whatsonmytable #daysofsmallthings #foodfoodfood #environmental #gogreen 💚 #polytunnel #glutenfreerecipes #hypothyroidmom #joyfulmamas #nourishingfood #foragingforfood #kinfolktable #zerowaste #farmtotable

What a day! 6 hours total - the biggest job (so we thought!) only took less than 5 minutes which was getting the polythene over the framework. Paul had done all of the prep work with the trench and battening around the perimeter, when it came to securing the polythene, it was fairly easy - not the easiest working position, and a bit fiddly, trying to tension & secure between us as we went along the edges. The door frames were easy to do, and the front edges fell into place when that was done. Dad @clive_godfrey suggested double skinning the doors, and with some reinforcement, the staple gun and teamwork, they turned out great. Then we tensioned the frame which made the polythene drum tight and were hoping it will last for many years to come! The earth had been rotovated beforehand, it got a going over with a Wolf Garten Soil Miller - the most helpful tool for preparing ground, and we levelled out the central path - this is to be confirmed as it’s final location as it might not be practical where it is! Not bad for 6 hours and 4 people! (A lot of that was sat down drinking and chatting to be fair! It was hot!) Thanks to @lowflyingturtle @clive_godfrey and Stephen Cook for your invaluable assistance #jobwelldone #polytunnelprep #polytunnelgrowing #polytunnelproject #polytunnel @polytunnelsdirect #nowtofillit #heirloomtomatoes #teamwork

The latest member of the polytunnel family is potted up and in position. What a beaut! If you’ve never heard of a Brugmansia before (also called angels trumpets) google them and then you’ll definitely want one, not just for their looks the smell they give off is divine! I also have a yellow one, I lost my white one to the terrible winter we had and a pink one is on my wish list. So you could say I have a bit of a thing for them... #brugmansia #angelstrumpet #polytunnel #exoticplants #flowerstagram #ombre #flowersofinstagram #shesowsseeds

Valnötterna flyttar in. Visste ni att det finns flera arter valnötter som ger ätbara nötter även på våra breddgrader? Vi odlar 5 stycken olika i plantskolan och kommer finnas till försäljning nu när vi öppnar igen nästa helg. Alla med nordlig proveniens. Dessutom blir de fantastiskt vackra träd med breda kronor, stora exotiska blad som ger en behaglig skugga. . . #valnöt #valnötter #valnötsträd #juglans #walnuttree #småskalig #plantskola #trädplantskola #planteraträd #nötodling #nötodlingisverige #skogsträdgård #ätbarträdgård #odla #trädgård #trädgårdsinspiration #trädgårdsinspo #polytunnel #bågväxthus #odlingstunnel

The grapes in the polytunnel have started to show signs of ripening over the last week. This vine is now about 5 years old and the variety is called "Muscat Bleu". We have been very pleased with the grapes so far and this seasons will be mainly used to make some wine. 🍇🍷

Gave the outside of the poly tunnel a good wash and it has cleaned up rather nicely. Now hoping this will increase some light and ripen those crops in there. . . . #allotment #allotmentlife #polytunnel

3 varsities of the 13 varieties I got from the @nationalbotanicgardens_ireland for the tomato festival 🍅Principe Borghese wasn’t as flavourful as expected, it was nice but nothing to write home about 🍅Sungrape was tasty but the texture wasn’t the best. Maybe I let them get over ripe? 🍅Masketka packs a zingy punch with a good firm texture. You can’t beat a homegrown tomato! #growyourown #growyourownfood #tomatoes #polytunnel #totallyterrifictomatofestival #harvest #homegrown #shesowsseeds

Exciting things are happening in the jungle inside our polytunnel. Beautiful corn silk on the maturing sweetcorn ears. Those corn stalks have reached the top of the tunnel (about 8 feet). The reason for all this excitement is that our attempts to grow sweetcorn outside only met with limited success, so this looks like a massive improvement.
