Lovely idea Richard, but alas, Radish. They were very nice on my salad sandwich yesterday!

At long last Blueberry> here they are. Those are very healthy cauliflower and broccoli in the propagating house, and some end for end shots of both

Very nice... I can't help but think you waited for your set-styling props before posting... And very healthy looking props they are too :D

I got the first of the hydroponic gear going yesterday. So far leeks which I am informed do very well hydroponically, so we'll see on that one. I have some cos lettuce to put in the rest of that one and then in the top one on a slightly different concentrate, I will try scarlet dwarfs again.

Well the top one is operational albeit under test, but it isn't leaking, so I will be able to start those scarlet dwarfs this weekend. I might also transplant my strawberries if the mix is ok for both.

Have to agree with you.... We erected a small plastic greenhouse and the vegetables I planted a month ago are doing so well! I love my greenhouse :) (might have to build another I think:)

The raised garden in my third picture is also lined. It is H4 treated, so we lined it. A better option I think than using something that will rot out in a few short years.

I love the greenhouses... I'm so jealous! :p
I do plan on building one at some stage but I'm still in "cleanup" phase here. This place was extremely run down so I still have a lot to sort out before I can even think about placing a greenhouse somewhere.

For example, I spent today digging this pile of rubble out from underneath what appeared to be a large mound of overgrown grass (and I'm only half done!). :(

Incredible what people will bury. Our old place had a wine bottle midden which probably went back to when it was a farm. Unbelievable the glass we dug out of there, and it was all in small bits.

I've run into an unexpected problem. My precious beans of only which a few germinated, were doing well and then suddenly first one collapsed and then another. Alarmed I carefully dug them out and to my dismay, I discovered that ants were farming mealy bugs on the roots of the beans. I have put some insecticide on them, and down a few ant holes I found on the floor of the glasshouse, and the beans have been put back into seed raising mix. They are slowly recovering, but still look pretty sick. I can't afford to lose these precious beans.
Blueberry they are the ones I sent you a few years ago to trade with the yacon. Any chance you kept the seed at all? Would love a few back if you have, as insurance.
