Bob's bean in the whitehouse.
Garden goes ahead in leaps & bounds, lovely weather to be gardening. My whitehouse plantings are really doing well, beans just flowering with no sign of bean fly, they are really healthy, I think the covering is keeping them warmer at night, temps down to 8C, but have not installed a thermometer. Broccoli also excellent, picking giant heads.
Visiting Elaine's garden at Tannum she also has a 'whitehouse' but has made hers from fruitfly exclusion shade cloth, mine is insect exclusion at 25 threads to the inch. I think hers may prove better as it is not getting as hot in the middle of the day also gets more breeze in, also shade is less at 17% mine is 27%, time will tell hers may not keep the beanfly out!!
In the outside garden tomatoes are doing well, this year I have supported them on bent reo wire to keep plants off the ground & am cutting off all lower leaves & any that show signs of black spot - so far very good
Brandywine, just starting to flower.
Our honey bees are enjoying the plants that are flowering, this is Chinese Broccoli.
I've been growing my own fruit & veg for 30 years but it still gives me a thrill to have grown all the veg we eat in a day. Tried winter corn this year they filled well, & no bugs but did not have the flavour of summer corn, suppose it needs more heat for good flavour.
The bread oven is started.
Then the mud , two more layers to come. First the sand mold
