We've had our first harvest of beetroot from the polytunnel - did my favourite roasted beetroot with balsamic vinegar, garlic and fresh herbs.
The polytunnel is blooming, in fact quite a lot of things are bolting, so we need to work out what to do about that. One thing that hasn't worked very well is that a lot of our broad beans are empty, which could be to lack of pollination?
Therefore, we decided to leave the doors open on the polytunnel since we got back from London last Monday. Unfortunately, we have ended up with some rather unpleasant insect visitors - I have no idea they are, hornets perhaps, but there was one buzzing about (quite scary!) and my husband found this one (see below) floating in his watering can!
