Clean up your act

With the mild weekend weather, we ventured up to the greenhouse for a general clean up. All whitewash was scrubbed from the glass. Floors were swept. Surplus flower pots were removed and stored. Oh, how many there were! Just where do they come from? And why are they ALL different sizes & dimensions? All the odds and sods will be put to good use at the school Summer fete.

The inside of the greenhouse was given a good wash too. Followed with a vinegar rinse. That should deal with any critters that have taken up residence over the growing season! Dettol was the personal sponsor of the event. And has continued to sponsor the house for a few more days.

A brand new bubble wrapping system of suspension wires. A single wire was hung between the two points of the roof and large sheets of bubble wrap were draped over. This made the task considerably more simple than last year. Snug as a bug in a rug.

Now the greenhouse is ready, willing and able to host the yet-to-even-be-sown chilli seedlings. Current daytime temperature 16 degrees, night time temp was a balmy 10 degrees. Let’s see what happens when the snow fairy has visited.
