It was sunny yesterday. Really and truly sunny with real sun and a blue sky and cheerful warmth. Fantastic!
Another grafted tomato arrived. I bought this purely from curiosity - it was expensive and I don't need it but then how many of the things I buy do I actually really need? Not many. It intrigued me as it's a black tomato. Photo borrowed from the internet! I will pot it on today and we shall see.
Seth turned up and now my tayberry is in the ground. I mentioned this in my extra blog yesterday but it's a Good Thing so it's on the list. Now I have my fingers crossed that it is happy there.
I have a little passion fruit plant that has been in a mini pot for much longer than it should have been. I'm surprised it is still alive, to be quite honest. Yesterday I finally managed to get my act together and plant it! Again, my fingers are crossed for it.
The dwarf beans have finally germinated. Again, I mentioned this yesterday!
RIP little cucumber plant. I don't know what has happened but yesterday afternoon when I looked at the little cucumber plant that Dad brought over several weeks ago it had just collapsed. It's gone floppy and if it wasn't tied up against a cane it would be lying flat on the soil. It was fine yesterday and I have absolutely no idea what's happened but I'm sad because it was doing so well. I wonder if it is worth going to Wyvale to see if they have a replacement (preferably a grafted one) - I was so looking forward to fresh cucumber this summer. No, I've just remembered, I have two gherkin style plants in little pots that can also be eaten fresh (the fruit, not the pots). Maybe I should give them a go and see.
Just discovered another bad thing - greenfly on the lupin. Where are the ladybirds when you need them?
Today? Well, several bits and bobs on a list of Things To Do and then into school. Then reports. That's the day planned out really. Must remember to take the laptop and the security fob!
