Today has been another one of those wonderful days where I can spend as much time in the garden as possible. Oh, it’s so joyous when you’re able to do something like that. I’ve still got loads more Tomatoes to put into 6 inch pots. But I went to our local garden centre yesterday and managed to find a load more free pots in their recycling. I’m not sure if I’ve got enough to do them all, but if I’ve not, I’m not far off. After lots of sorting out of the Tomatoes, I finally had then all outside and any of the small ones I’ve given to my sister, any of the broken ones I’ve put in the compost heap, I sorted out the 3 inch pots from ones that decided to die, and were then left with the good ones. I’ve had to do the same in my greenhouse at home as I’ve done in the greenhouse on my allotment and had to place trays outside the staging. This isn’t ideal, but it means that I can fit in lots more plants.
I’ve only left a small space in the centre for me to walk in.
They’re all growing really well, so hopefully I’ll have a great harvest this year. I’ll keep you posted though.
I also managed to find some spare space on my patio to put some more Tomatoes and they’re attached to the fencing. I still have about 19 left to pot up, but ran out of pots, so will have to go and purloin some more from the local garden centre. I’m not stealing them, just recycling them. I’m saving them a job, and some money, so it’s a good thing. Then just as I was about to call it quits in the garden for the day, I noticed that some of the Sweet Peas, that I planted in a hanging basket have started to flower. I very carefully bent over my Tomatoes to see how they smelt. They’re called “Hi Scent”, and boy are they! They smell beautiful, and if the sun had been shining at that point, then I would have know that summer was upon us. But the grey clouds had descended and I knew that I was back in England having our typical summer!!
So another busy day (nothing new there), but still lots more to do.
