Do I need a greenhouse in Summer?

With all the lovely warm weather the whole vegetable garden 
has grown amazingly and is lush and fruitful.
So why bother with a greenhouse?

Well, because the fruit in the greenhouse is


They have no blemishes...

Fat Fruit - biggest and best!

I am pleased to announce the arrival
of the first tomato of the season
- Grosse Lisse
delivered safely by the Fat Fruit Greenhouse.

Sister for Capsicum and Chilli.

The facts are:
  • Two tomatoes were picked.
  • The larger one on the left was from the Fat Fruit Greenhouse the other out of the garden.
  • Both plants were grafted Grosse Lisse planted at the same time.
  • The Greenhouse delivered the larger fruit and the plant has lots more good sized fruit on it already.
  • The plant in the garden, although coming a dead heat in the race for first fruit, provided a smaller specimen AND has no other fruit set.

So the Green house wins...

Delicious, sweet little Broad Ripple Tomatoes.

More capsicums on the way.

These seeds germinated in two days!
