Could the white stuff be crushed shells?   Plenty of growbags there Tim.  So, Toms in there for sure.  What else do you grow in your GORGEOUS greenhouse?

I just knew you'd ask!

We sunk the 'house 1 foot for extra headroom - I need it! That took us into yellow clay. So, any excess water just made a slurry. So, after trying plastic sheeting and failing - that just slid on the slurry! - I now use wood shavings. They bind with the clay and make a sort of 'blockboard' surface. And reflect a bit of light?

Emma -  Yes, toms mainly, but also cucumbers (far end), aubergines & peppers. God willing!

But, as you  can see from my HP album, sometimes Hunter beans, lettuce , strawberries and melons. = Tim

Great greenhouse tim. Wish i had one like that. Have to admit though I had to look carefully to see that it was a greenhouse, at first glance it looked like a poly tunnel without a cover. lol!  Green smilie indeed!

By the way what is this 'mountain' thing with posting images. Have I missed something?  ???

Polytunnel indeed!! And we put it up ourselves in 2 days. But that was 30 years ago, when we were younger! It's 30'x12' and has 24 vents, 8 automatic, which is great.


The 'mountain'? Instead of typing the img bits, just click on the 4th thingy along on the bottom line - a landscape?? - and it does it for you. Pity it doesn't also know whether you want the / or not! = Tim

Oh THAT!!!  I use that all the time - never bothered to type the tags in like everyone else seems to do. :D

Apologies for sounding smug or superior - not meant that way at all  ;)
