Power finally came back on Friday afternoon, after being off for 5 days.
Went into wrecked greenhouse on Monday, scooped up the jumbled potting mix and seeds putting them all into a large polystyrene box. Now I have a lucky dip, see what grows box! Will be interesting to see what germinates.
Saturday I planted some more zucchini seeds and noticed that the lettuce box has some germinated seeds popping up.
Sunday - went and bought seedlings to replace the ones lost in the storm: tomatoes, eggplant, basil, zucchini and butternut squash. Potted some of these on so that they can be bigger and stronger before planting out. Also planted my purchases from last Saturday, restaked the olive tree, fed the citrus with diluted epsom salts and planted some lettuce seedlings.
The apple trees are covered with blossom which is a big relief as I was worried that the storm might have destroyed all of the blossom. Looking forward to a bumper apple harvest :-) Pruned back plants that were overshadowing one of the pear trees and an orange tree. Noticed that the Loquat fruits are starting to ripen.
Photos to be added shortly.
