August Poly-tunnel update

bellpepper

Bell pepper are coming up every where in the Poly-tunnel. Last year was our first successful bell pepper crop. Last year we had 4 plants this year we have 19. They seem to thrive in the Poly-tunnel which is a warm,  humid and wind free environment.

We have our very first Galeo-melon ever.  It was an experiment to see if we could grow them successfully in our climate. We hoped that they would thrive in a Poly-tunnel.  I am pleased with our first attempt to grow melons has gone so well thus far. It gives me such a feeling of  satisfaction, when we over come obstacles and succeed in growing something like bell peppers. We failed to grow them  in our earlier attempts. We are stubborn and try to learn from our mistakes and try again.  Gardening has a huge learning curve, that also requires patience. It is so satisfying, when you get it right.

  1. I’m so pleased you’ve got melons. Guess you’ll be growing them again next year?

    • I was surprised that it worked. I did not pollinate the flowers by hand. I was worried that they were not self pollinating, because it seem late in the season to finally get one melon. I didn’t get any information about the plant,when I bought it at the plant nursery. Yes, I plan to try and grow them again next year.The first time I tried to grow melons, I only got flowers. I started the plant inside the house and then planted it in the mini-green house.I pollinated the flowers by hand, but I never got anything but flowers.We only watered the vine this year and We got one melon. I don’t get it, but I am not complaining.

THE INTERNET POST

Welcome to TIP. ABC, CBS, NBC and all the cable news channels are all bought and paid for and report what they are told to report. The MSM lies to and instigates people into political argument and gossip that leads to dead-end roads and distracts from the real issues. There is much better informational news reporting away from the Democrat and Republican tail-spinning arguments that are usually rooted in confusion and hate.. TIP is your alternative.
