Good morning. everyone. It looks like another hot and sunny day is in the offing although the weather forecast presenter muttered something about humidity which would be a bit of a downer. Now I'm a bit lighter, I'm coping well with the heat but humidity is a different matter entirely!
Well, we will see.
I am happy to announce that one of the Surprise tomatoes has titchy little baby tomatoes now - so obviously fertile. I suppose then don't all have to be the same, depending on what pollinated them last year, so it will be fun seeing what comes along.
I got a whole load of little jobs done yesterday which was good. I pottered down to the allotment, noticing thankfully that the hot weather and lack of water has stopped the grass growing so no need to lug the heavy mower into the car and out again at the end of the visit. I just did a bit of hoeing and weeding and a lot of watering. Everything's growing well there which is nice, but there are a few outstanding tasks for next week - weeding among the potatoes and thinning out the apples and pears which are fantastic this year.
Today there's nothing much on the list, just the usual things so I shall take it easy and chill as much as possible. I hope you are able to do the same.
