the tomatoes regularly they have been sadly neglected as I didn’t tie them in properly nor them pinch out as I should have done. The result was a waist high jungle of foliage where I couldn’t even see most of the fruit so I’ve spent the past two mornings sorting them out.
Hopefully the exposed fruit will now start to ripen in the sunshine. The ones in the right-hand picture above are Gardener’s Delight, a popular variety that I grow most years.
The sunflowers are still flowering profusely and there’s one plant, a self-seeded one, that is approaching eight feet, which is perhaps the tallest I’ve grown. These ones are only about three feet with flowers that are just a few inches across.
Whilst lifting potatoes earlier in the week I was joined by a robin which was good to see as it’s been a few months since I last saw one on the plot. I also caught a brief glimpse of a very light coloured fox on a nearby path which was pleasing.
Have a good weekend!
