Dorset Nagas in the grow house

I went up to the allotment this evening to check the chillies I'd planted on Monday to see if they needed watering & how they were doing in their new grow house. They all looked good and healthy so I gave them another watering. Hopefully the extra heat of the grow house will get them growing nice and bushy and producing some good flowers and fruit.

Also at the allotment the onions sets are doing well. The fig tree has had a spurt of growth after being left all winter (I thought I'd killed it off by leaving it out in the frost with no water). The potatoes had started to come up so I've started covering them with soil too.

Hopefully at the weekend I'll get back up there and get some beetroot and salad planted as I've not really had time to get anything else planted yet. Bit late this year. I really like beetroot as a crop as it keeps well in the ground and seems to do really well where we are.

  1. nice, have you considered growing some other green stuff

  2. Those look like strong little plants!!

  3. I have never seen a fig tree before. I hope it produces good fruit or Jesus will kill it.
