Inside the hobbit hot house

You have to wipe down your glasses after stepping in as the temperature rises in there.

Is burgeoning in there with blooming aubergines. There are cascades of lilac flowers. If you look closely, having delicately stepped inside; there are a few white chilli and pepper flowers. Still don’t fancy even touching the habanero or naga plants at risk of dropping the flowers.

The crimson sweet water melon is vining all over that place and today i spotted two fruit in need of pollinating. Sweet potatoes are also sprawling everywhere.

Poly tunnel contents

A quick wander around the poly tunnel. My apologies for the weeds. We have the newly adopted black prince aubergines, settling in and flowering. At the back the happy for now habaneros are sat along the nagas. The dorset and bengle nagas are somewhat developmentally delayed having experienced some sun scorch and loosing their rather lush leaves. Nigel and the pretty purple are no more! I think the sweet pepper california wonder is going the same way. The crimson sweet watermelon is so far so good. I have attached to a cane, so that it can grow up, rather than out.
