I was at the horticultural trading shed as usual this morning when I heard the skittering of dog claws on the floor behind me. I turned round to find Marley, the Staffie, sitting looking at me patiently waiting for a biscuit or two.
At home I’ve a few plants growing in pots on the window sill. There are tomatoes – two each Gardener’s Delight, Golden Queen and Outdoor Girl. You’ll notice that the leaves of the latter, on the right in the picture, are different to most tomatoes. These will all be planted out on the plot next month.
I’m also growing a couple each indoor tomatoes Red Robin and Tumbling Tom Yellow, and two cucumbers Straight Eight which germinated in just a few days. Sown at the same time were two each courgette Nero di Milano and squash Sunburst F1 none of which have germinated so I’ll sow some more in the next day or two.
The forecast is for unsettled weather, including heavy rain, through the coming week but I hope to do some plotting, even if it’s only weeding.
Have a good week!
