First we had to repair the seedling stand. This unit has been out in all the weather for a few years now and the side struts had started to rust through. With the winds this year most have snapped off.

Autumn Greens Sowing

Doc came to the rescue with some old conduit pipe (bought for another task but wasn't suited) and made new struts. All fixed and ready to protect the new seedlings as they grow. Most of the seedlings are brassicas and as such can be wiped out in their early growth by cabbage moth caterpillars...this stand is covered with Vege Net to keep the moths off.

On the edge of Beds 23 and 18
Climbing Beans Rattlesnake D
Climbing Beans Purple King D
Climbing Beans Butter GP

SO Select Organic
ES Eden Seeds
