Well, it was definitely worth getting the installers back to lift the panels to the tight angle - it's meant an extra 2kw per day -we're now averaging 15 rather than 12 (across days with the same weather - clear sunny skies). Very happy with this result and can't wait to see what they generate in summer.
Today I also got into the greenhouse (it was lovely and warm!) to plant my tomato, pepper (capsicum) and chilli seeds - they are now on the heat mat in the house for germination. I also pricked out and re-potted the cabbage seedlings (bekana, green acre and cuor varieties).
It's nice to think that this year's growing season is under way - even though it's just in the greenhouse.
