    Hi Caroline,We have our tomato plants in the greenhouse and they are doing fine. I think they don’t really like the changing Irish weather that much :-)Our greenhouse was thrown together with some old windows Steve got from the building sites. We also have cucumber in it and aubergines…although they are quite lazy.Elke

    They definitely didn’t like the weather we had around here for the last three summers! I like the sound of that greenhouse. Will keep my eye out for old windows to re-use. We also tried growing outdoor cucumbers but to no avail. At least the courgette plant is doing us proud!

  3. Growing your own vegetables at home is an incredible experience isn’t it. Many people who live in the hustle and bustle of the city never really get to enjoy these pleasures because they are too busy living the city life. It really pays to be in touch with nature though. At Climatarians, we bring people interested in environmental issues together in order to make a positive impact on our environment.
