Nebulisers, what an effort itís turned out to be. We decided to put new support wires up so that we get them an extra half a metre up. All of this to get maximum cooling and cut down the chance of water on the leaves. We have also put a new pump in and itís going to be about three weeks work

Sarah tested positive for covid yesterday and Iím so worried that she will be okay. My gorgeous daughter Katie is expecting twins in a few weeks time so hopefully it will pull her through.

Sarahís been really sick but thankfully slowly getting better. Stuartís started the 40 hour job of digging the patch. The photo doesnít really show the depth of the soil but itís deep.

Stuartís been adding a huge amount of Perlite yet again to keep the soil nice and open and it was 50 not 40 hours work. The pile in front of me is one third of the soil from one patch. By the time each area is dug and gently put down Stuart worked out that there is 12 extra cubic meters of air per patch.
