Tomato House Preparation
Now that the tomato house has had its broken glass replaced, Ali and Callum spent the morning preparing it for the growing season. The cold frame lids were removed from their winter storage inside the house and washed off.
The two borders were then forked through, mulch added and levelled. Tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce will be grown in these borders again this year.
