Well another 3 days at home and things are progressing a bit in the garden. Finally I have tomatoes growing. Not many, but it is a start. Been a bit of a disastrous tomato growing season but I kept my hopes up for a bit of a crop.
Based on the shape of these I think that they are the cream sausage variety, but I confess that I lost the labels during the garden work. I have another couple of small ones growing here and there but not really worth
taking a photo of yet.
While I was in France I went to a public gardens that had masses of edibles growing. I got the impression that they were free for anyone to pick but I was not sure. The tomatoes there made mine look pathetic. Plants taller than me with toms bigger than a man's fist all ripe and delicious looking. Still I don't lose heart, any home grown tomatoes are a lovely bonus.
My cabbages are coming on nicely and I am going to try and get a raised bed in this week to get the cabbages and caulis in the ground.
My potatoes are looking ready as the tops have mostly died down. Don't want to pull them all up yet as I am going away, but I am assuming they are happy to sit in the ground for a while? Anyone?
Finally I have some chilli news. They are beginning to grow at last. These must be the slowest plants in the world as they have been in since last March.
I'm doubting on seeing any interesting activity on them until next summer really, but they look healthy good plants.
The very good news is that the slugs seem to hate my deck (I think it must be uncomfortable to slime over) so all my pots are finally completely free of the little bastards.
Hope everyone is having good gardening times.
