Hi from Dublin

Postby me-o-matic » Mon Nov 19, 2012 12:36 pm

Hi,

We are from North Dublin.

We have had a greenhouse for a while. We had a local person dismantle unused market garden greenhouses from the area and rebuild to our size/spec in our garden. It's great.

We devoted part of our garden to fruit and veg.

We have 4 chickens which are more like pets.

We have just purchased 4.5 acres near our house and I will probably have lots of questions on what to do with it/how to do things!

Forgot to add... I have also, in the past, run cars on vegetable oil.

Oh we keep bees too, but our hives died earlier this year. Hope to get up an running again soon.

Hello

We have just been given a similar market garden greenhouse, it is 15 x 12ft. It was from the garden of a local commercial cucumber grower (scaled down version). What to you grow in yours?

Hi, ours is about 12 x 20. The problem i have with it is that it is quite high and it is hard to replace broken panes!

We grow lots!

We have a very successful grapevine. Also good results with tomatoes.

We did a peach tree and got a few off of it but it died.

Also, some peppers, cucumbers and the usual mundane stuff!

Hi there and welcome :wave:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
