End of May.

I'm still chopping up leafy weeds and vegetable waste, to scatter between plants and rows in the polytunnel; cut grass from the lawn, as well. The generous watering in the hot weather passes through this covering, and less of it evaporates.

June is a good month to erect a new tunnel, so the polythene cover can get tighter through the autumn months. A great variey of crops can be started from late July to September.

I once planted dahlias in a polytunnel

 - it was a mistake.

Sweet peas and chrysanthemums make good autumn crops. Order chrysanth plants now.

I'm sowing more rocket, spinach, tatsoi and other quick leaves to make salad and later chopped leaves to scatter.
