Unlike yesterday this morning has been breezy and cloudy so I just spent a couple of hours pottering.
I picked the first few climbing French beans Cobra and runner beans St George.
I’ve started lifting the onions Sturon which I’m relieved to see are firm around the roots with no sign of softness or white rot. They’re not as big as previous years, or as many.
I’m pleased to see that my one cucumber Marketmore not only survived slugs and waterlogged ground but has got flowers on it and one fruit which is about four inches long.
I didn’t sow any pink cosmos this year but one plant has appeared which now has well over twenty flowers on it as well as plenty more buds.
At home I’ve got a tomato Tiny Tim which has twenty fruit on it the first of which is just starting to ripen.
You can see how small they are, being no bigger than my finger tip. This is my best effort yet at growing tomatoes on the windowsill.
Have a good week!
