Finally. Looks like this year – yep, another damp summer – could be the year that I get a bumper crop of tomatoes.
I’ve assimilated loads of advice and tips. I sowed seeds in god time. Planted out when the plants were nice and healthy. The soil’s good. My magic liquid feed has been applied regularly. Thanks to Mrs Allotment 5 1/2 the greenhouse has been kept warm to ripen the fruits.
Everything else is down to sunshine. Intuitively, I’d say it’s not been great. But, we’ve had good stretches of sun in May and June. Plus, the last few weeks have seen a few decent days.
All told, I’m pleased that we’re getting a constant and growing stream of sweet little toms – Gardener’s Delight, indeed. Moneymakers are on the way.
Meanwhile, the salad bed keeps producing bags of sandwich filling. There should even be a cucumber or two ready by the end of the week.
