Hi global team! You don't mind me calling you that do you?
So it's been another exciting/busy/crazy/tiring week in the glasshouse (and at training courses and doing admin for the new academic year - but let's pretend it was all glasshouse!)
Two days harvesting an experiment in pleasantly cool weather. I don't ever remember doing a glasshouse harvest in Australia and thinking how much I want a hot steaming shower! Usually a cold bath or sitting in front of the airconditioner for a few hours was top priority! This is one of many things I truly love about living in the UK.
My new rhizoboxes arrived as well. So many exciting experiments to be done with these! I filled them on Thursday - thats 60 x 25 litre bags of potting mix that I carried in, broke up and poured into the boxes! Not a trivial exercise - but exercise it was! Pic below is a red-faced dirt-covered me just after watering them in.
There's also a fabulous picture of my boxes with Spongebob trying to get out somewhere on twitter! :) - you'll have to look it up to see the reason!
So that's my update. So many other things going on too - never a dull moment!
