Still standing

The other night, I was able to get out after work before it got dark and plant out three more pak choi. Hopefully, they will thrive after having plenty of time indoors to get biggish – and used to a more pleasant climate than the one outdoors.

Certainly, so far they don’t seem to be suffering. The high winds over the last few days haven’t bothered them or, it seems, the large cloches (in the background of the photo), which have previously not staying put when there’s been any significant wind.

Surprisingly, the cucumbers are also growing.

No doubt, with their position in the herb garden they are getting the most of the sunlight that falls at this time of year.

However, it’s not all been hunky-dory. The potted tomatoes, and the sunflowers in pots also, have kept toppling over. They are unscathed at least and happily continuing to do there stuff!

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
