Well this morning was pissing down again (will it ever stop)? But I popped down the allotment to pot up the last of the Tomato plants into 6 inch pots. They’re now all done and tied in, so that’s one job done. Then this afternoon I went into the greenhouse at home and potted up my Cucamelons into large 5 litre pots. I’ve put 4 plants per pot. I was going to grow some outside and some in the greenhouse and compare them, but we’ve had so much rain and the temperature is very up and down, that I don’t think it’s worth doing. I also had a couple of Sweet Pepper plants that needed to be potted up into larger pots, so I did that, and then potted up the rest of the Tomatoes that I have at home. Gosh it’s been busy, a lot of coming and going, but I’m getting there. I’m starting to see light at the end of the poly tunnel which is a great feeling. Still lots more to do. Tomorrow is supposed to be dry, so I’ll be up the allotment for as long as possible.
Claire, mowed two vacant lots to use the grass for mulch; walked my cousin’s dog twice; set the live trap at Terra Nova Gardens baited with a cherry fruit pie; weeded on raised bed of sweet corn; pumped the water barrel full of water; watered all the garden plants; and collapsed in the recliner chair after a nice shower. All in all it was a very productive day. Oh yeah, it tried to rain but only sprinkled enough to raise the humidity.
Have a great potting up cucamelons day.
Wow!! Busy day for you!!
Blessing thank you for sharing Claire
I’m glad someone likes cucamelons, i found them very disappointing last year, the skins were tough and they didn’t taste of anything really!
I’m wondering if you harvested them when they were too large. Make sure you harvest them when they’re the size of a small olive. If they get too large, they bitter and the skin is tough.
you could be right- i didn’t bother with any
this year, maybe i’ll give them another try next year.
Try them next year again.
