Winter is finally upon us. Last weekend we had a lot of snow and now the temperature has dropped to minus 10 degrees centigrade.
I have this amazing polytunnel but have never been able to grow tomatoes successfully. Until this year that is! After coming across a special tomato planter on the internet we decided to give it a try…
Summer is in full swing and so are the veggies in the polytunnel and veg beds. Even though I do not have a lot of time, or maybe in spite it, the veg are doing marvellously.
It seems that here in the Belgian Ardennes over the last few days, every minute of the day the weather changes. Sunshine is followed by a hailstones as big as grapes, followed by black clouds and angry howling winds …to have the sun return once again.
After all the snow, fiercely cold winds, icicles and slippery roads we were suddenly pleasantly surprised by a surge in temperatures and….sunshine!
Outside it is -1°C, inside it is 10°C. Inside the polytunnel that is!
