Yesterday evening I popped out into the garden to look at the tomatoes.  Yes, they're still there, still producing slowly.  I haven't picked for over a week now and there were enough to fill two bowls.  Not all were ripe, especially from the pear shaped tomato plants (pear shaped tomatoes, not pear shaped plant!).  I stripped them of fruit because they have finally been blighted!  In between reports today I need to get what's left into the brown bin, weather permitting.

There's still a number of green beef tomatoes left on the plants, as well as others from the growhouse - they've all fallen over now and I've not bothered to pick them up.  There's also some more accidental hundreds and thousands to pick today.  It may have been a slow season but it has actually been a pretty good season too!

My biggest decision today is do I have a PJ day or do I get dressed?  Right now I have no idea.


  1. I cannot believe your lesson was so bad why would it be. Perhaps you are the victim of mal communication there is a lot of it about you know. If you fancy a pj day then go ahead and have one. I felt terrible this morning but went back to bed and slept for a while and now feel much better.

  2. That's what I try to tell myself, Diane. It's merely a reflection of my ongoing issues with self esteem!!!
    I'm sorry you felt terrible earlier and glad that you feel much better now.
