On a sunny day it's out into the garden time. DH constructed a hoop house (half hoop house) to cover the broccoli and calabrese we're going to plant. It covers a shady part of the garden but we've planted these brassicas in the shade before and they did well. Last year we covered the plants but the plants grew too big for their cover. This year I'll be able to walk inside the enclosure.
It's made from conduit pipe and will, hopefully, when covered in netting ...
... stop the little butterflies from laying their eggs on the plants.
No more picking out the caterpillars from the harvest now!
