I ran out of green paint :o( but never mind, I found a few less energetic jobs to do round and about the garden.
so I did some pinching out. You can see my first lot of flowers, tomatoes soon.
This year I put them in pots. The green thingymejigs on top aren't cheap (3 for £19.99 I think) but they are brilliant, because it gives the tomatoes a bit more 'root' room and the water gets directly to the roots. I always put a layer of gravel on any exposed eart as it helps stop them drying out so quickly!
I only have three in the green house this year, I also have about five planted out in the veg patch and also three in my mini greenhouse in a special tomato growbag!
My cucumbers really slowed up during the cold weather but we have fruit again
The peppers are quite slow also, this is just one of them....
I recieved a parcel this morning which I am very excited about, do you remember my brugmansia from last year. I have been after some new ones. It has taken me ages to find ones that aren't white. As you know I love white in the garden but hubby says we need colour! Well he's going to get it because I have got one of these
which as you can see I have forgotten to put gravel on!!! But it will soon (hopefully) look like this
they are also very difficult to come by! Because the lady I bought it from is retiring she also sent me a cutting of one of these
how lucky am I!
Right got to get ready to go to an art exhibition, a chance to see my daughters art work, I hope to have some pics for tomorrow!!
