My cotton plants have grown pretty well so far. We have had some good, hot weather, but really they were just planted too late. However, today I found a flower (at least I think it's a flower). It probably won't develop into anything as it's starting to cool down now, but I'm pretty sure it is a flower.
This has actually given me hope that next year I can grow cotton! If it's sown a lot earlier, and protected, I think I should be able to grow my own.
My new greenhouse will help towards that end. Work started this week on my greenhouse. We had been waiting for the visit of my sister and brother-in-law to start the work, because Geoff used to be a welder in his previous life, and we needed welding!
These photos show one of the roof panels being lowered into place. It's still far from completion, but at least it's started. I have high hopes of being able to start things off in there in the late autumn.
