It’s time to plant the tomatoes.

After a few days delay on account of the recent cold snap I have got the tomatoes planted into the Solar Quadgrows.

All the plants are “Sakura” and it’s a great feeling getting the season underway. The plants have been well watered in and will be left a week or so to establish before the solar pump is connected up.

Finally we are planting in the polytunnel

As you can see the dwarf French beans are planted into the solar quadgrow.

The seed germination was very poor but I’m very hopeful of an excellent crop. The variety is Opera which has a good reputation for taste. Note the pots in the centre of each square pot to enable easy planting of the tomatoes in  3 or 4 week’s time.
