More from the Greenhouse

The greenhouse team with this year's pumpkin harvest. Not quite record breaking like our cherries, but plenty to eat anyway! It took 2 people to lift each pumpkin and a tractor to move them down to the kitchen.
 In the last few months We've had plenty of strawberries, raspberries, cherries, peaches, plums, grapes and nectarines from the greenhouse. The pears have been excellent this year: very large and a delicious flavour. 
 Postulant Mr. Janes picks some of our apples for the table. 
 After being barren for several years, the kiwifruit vines have finally fruited. They are not quite ripe yet, but should be soon.

The weather has not been very good for tomatoes this year, but we still got a few that were a decent size! This one is just an ordinary tomato, not a a beefsteak or giant variety!

If you don't mind my asking, how much area do you have devoted to your greenhouse?

Astounding. Both your produce and the fact you're under glass not polytunnels.

I'm in Thurso and currently grow my veg outdoors. As poorly as my crop was, what shocked me this year was the complete... and, I mean complete... failure of my beetroots.

Puts a whole new meaning into - 'by their fruits you shall know them'!

The next question, though, is what has grown from the grains of mustard seeds you may have cast. What d'you grow outdoors?
