On the window sill at home the regal pelargonium White Splash has grown well and flowered again.
I’m hoping to enter the other pot plant, a gazania Daybreak, in the show as it’s just about to flower again for the third time. Although it looks like being touch-and-go as to whether it will be in bloom by Saturday.
On Monday I wasn’t surprised to find the the tomato plants had succumbed to blight as the site just across the road has had it for a couple of weeks. Thankfully I’d already picked plenty of fruit over the previous few weeks, and given much of it away. The black ones are still mostly black but a few have changed to a blotchy red which indicates that they’re ripe. I cut one open to find that it was dark red, and found that it tasted rather bland so I don’t think I’ll be growing them next year. The picture shows the large Legend, popular Gardener’s Delight, yellow Golden Sunrise, and a few of the red/yellow Sunrise Bumble Bee.
This morning I took my show entry form round to Christine, the show secretary. I’m a bit surprised that I’ve entered ten classes, although that might change slightly. Tomorrow morning I’ll be picking, and sorting, climbing French and runner beans then after lunch checking that everything is okay and ready for Saturday. What a palaver!
Have a good weekend!
