Planting Sweetcorn Under Cloche and Tomatoes into Growbags

The threatened rain held off so down to the plot for a few hours this evening.

We erected two growbag houses by the shed, which have seen better days but are just about serviceable still. Into these went 3 Moneymaker and 3 Gardeners Delight tomatoes along with a few marigold to deter the white fly.


Then planted out the sweetcorn under cloches on plot 5.Although the weather is warm enough not to need cloching, it will  bring them on and I don’t trust it not to produce a frost one night in the next couple of weeks. Gave them 2 handfuls of pelleted chicken manure per 10′ row which should get them off to a good start.


Finally hoed between the broad beans and thence to home.
