plants in the poly tunnel


We have four melons. unfortunately one had a rotten spot on it. I had to throw it in the compost. It was too green to eat. It was bigger than this one in the picture. We are going to be able to successfully grow melons but we will have to start them very early in the spring. There is no way they will have time to ripen this year, because July was so rainy. Lesson learned. I still can’t believe that we were able to grow melons in Sweden. I am amazed that we did this well on our second attempt at growing melons.

Bell pepper are doing very well. This year it looks like we will have green pepper instead of red ones. The weather played a huge roll in it.

The celery is doing great. I will have to take it in before the frost. This year I will leave the root in the ground covered with hay for the winter. We will see if they survive until next spring. If they do my celery stalks should be bigger. It will be interesting to see if it works out. I have no idea why hubby didn’t photograph the tomatoes.I have been harvesting them this week. I am making a lot of sun dried tomatoes. We of course are cooking with them as well. They are delicious.
