Unlike today it was dry and sunny on Monday when I picked the last few tomatoes, then pulled up the plants to put on the compost heap and dug the ground over. I’m really surprised at how well they did considering what I said in this It’s mostly tomatoes… post which I did nearly two months ago.
At home I’ve had two plants on the windowsill. There’s this Red Robin which produced a few fruit ages ago then nothing until now, with the biggest of these three being about an inch diameter. Although the plant is still growing and flowering I’ll be surprised if there’s any more fruit.
Does anyone else grow tomatoes at home on the windowsill, and if so what variety and do you have any tips.
It’ s overcast and raining today, with more of the same forecast for the coming week, so I guess that I’ll be doing some plotting of a different kind in preparation for November when I will be having another go at writing a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. Glo (Porcelain Rose) has given me some light-hearted encouragement with her Boot up … post. What I can tell you is that the provisional title is The Missing Sunglasses, and I’ll be posting more about it and how I’m getting on, or not, in the coming weeks over on Sofa flying. This post is 306 words long, which compares with the 1667 words that I will need to average daily throughout November. I think that I’ll be drinking lots of cups of tea and eating far too many biscuits!
Have a good week!
