I couldn't possibly post pics of my garden - it would never stand the comparison with yours :(

OK, if you insist.
Bear in mind that this has taken me at least six months of sheer neglect to achieve this excellence.

This is my fruit cage (prospective site of) ...........

How do you do big photo's, is photo shop what they do to models. I love your gardens Doofa and OS, I am always really interested to see what other people do, no two gardens are ever the same. I have been caught by the weather, I hate it and everything is being a bit neglected, the tunnels are getting to 40 centigrade by 8am and they only really start cooling at 9pm, there is no shade at all where I am. Here are tiny pictures (all I can manage) of my two tunnels and the calabrese I have slowly murdered

Wow DND, your tunnel looks TIDY :shock:

The clear(ish) area on the left is where I just this morning grubbed a row of peas.

My other tunnel is relatively empty, the centre bed has been cleared to make way for late season early potatoes .... just as soon as I pluck up the courage to dig it in 40+ degrees.
