Friday 27th May 2016 – That’s one Tomato done, just all the rest to do!

This afternoon I started to pot up my Tomato plants into 6 inch pots. I’ve got 226 tomatoes to pot up, I hope I have enough pots? Oh well, I’ll soon find out. If you’re planting your Tomatoes outside, make sure all frost has gone in your area before you put them out. You can also grow them in grow bags, and containers. I used to grow them outside in the allotment, but if someone gets blight, then we all do. And you can never tell what the weather is going to be like. Damp and humid bring on Blight!! So I now grow them in my greenhouses and some in my garden. So far my garden is a blight free zone. I’ve started with “Caspian Pink”. But you may remember I have loads of other varieties as well. I’ll stake them in about a weeks time, but I have to move more plants down to the allotment first. I’ll keep you posted on how I get on.

    Claire, I’ve been out of town over the weekend so I’m just now catching up on my social media that I follow. Two hundred and twenty six tomatoes grown in a green house? Wow, you make my operation of 14 tomato plants look like a very small production. I have very little blight issues and all my tomatoes are planted outside. I have one Early Girl plant that got pounded by hail but she has one good stem that has green tomatoes and another that has blooms. Tomatoes are more hardy that I assumed. A branch that survived the beating has become the main stem of the plant now and is recovering magnificently. Last Thursday I planted my tomato plants in the mud. It just hasn’t stopped raining long enough to dry out. I plant sweet corn directly in the ground and had to plant the second planting in the mud as well. I hope the seed doesn’t rot. The first planting is up about four inches. Well, it was last Thursday which was the last time I visited the garden. I expect weeding will be the task for the next few days. Blast those bind weeds. They are relentless.

    Have a great tomato planting day.
