Tuesday 20th September 2016 – The last of the Tomatoes.

A drizzly start to the day, but it soon cleared up. The sun didn’t shine, but we’ve had a lot of sun over the past week so I didn’t mind. I can feel my tan slowly fading and soon I’ll be back to my white pasty self again. Never mind, it was good while it lasted. The shorts are now away and I doubt very much if they’ll come out again this year. Because the day was a bit damp to start with, I still went down the allotment. Now that I have the greenhouse I can still do work under cover even when the weather is a bit unfriendly for us gardeners. I spent the morning sorting out the Tomato plants in the greenhouse. They’ve practically finished now, so I picked off the final few tomatoes, whatever colour they were, and then got rid of the plants. The old plants are great to pop straight in the compost heap as they’ll break down very quickly and the compost will be ready to use on the allotment next year. I spent a couple of house working my way through as many as I could, but have only managed to get half way. I’ll finish the rest tomorrow where I’ll be able to stay on the allotment for longer, so will take some lunch with me. The weather is supposed to be more gardener friendly tomorrow, so that’s good.

The last of this years tomatoes. They did very well this year.

    Claire, it’s always difficult for me to pull up those tomato plants at the end of season. I’m always thinking maybe just one more ripe tomato before the season has to end. I’ll end up with a wheelbarrow full of green ones. They will be wrapped ini newspaper and put in the food storage room in the basement. Folks tell me that they will eventually ripen. It will be a test to see if it really works.

    Have a great day on the allotment.
