I have had a good de-leafing session today as the weather is changing, so I want to give my plants as much air circulation as posible to help prevent blight. It is very important to keep your polytunnel well ventilated at this time of the year with early morning dew about.
My irrigation system has been great, I just put the watering on a time-clock a few times a day and only water with a can when I am feeding the plants.
If the weather cools down and I keep feeding my plants I can keep training them over the wires for another month, then I will nip out the heads of the plants to encourage the last fruits to swell and ripen.
The peppers and chilies are loving the heat and have been cropping amazingly
Mrs Tomato King will be very busy making her fantastic sweet Chili sauce
It has also been a great year for melons, they really like the heat
Holly had to get in on the act of course and help harvest the peppers!
