The green, green house

Things have been going very well in the green house.
Some dahlias for the window boxes and some gem lettuce - safe from the slugs and snails. As I don't use any pesticides in the garden, these lettuce would not last long at all. 

Strawberries ands raspberries are now all finished - a bumper crop this years thanks largely to the early bumblebee Bombus pratorum.

The blue berries are now ready to eat. The tomato plants are full of flower and a few tomatoes have started to develop.
And you can even recycle/reuse old dessert containers, as the make perfect starter pots and the plastic food containers and old washing up bowl are replace the pot saucers when watering.
