Wednesday - mainly garden and allotment.

Morning, everyone.

I spent some early morning time in the garden yesterday, first feeding everything and then tying up the tomatoes and pinching out the top shoots so they can put all their energy into growing nice long trusses.  Some of them were threatening to climb over the fence and escape into next door's garden!

They're doing ever so well now.  Just look at all those tomatoes.


I'm puzzled by this one.  The label says 'gardener's delight' which it most certainly is NOT.  I put my (wrinkled) hand behind it so you can see the size.  Some sort of beef tomato, I suppose but where on earth did it come from?

Not that I am complaining, you understand - just puzzled.

Thank goodness they are mini-cucumbers.  I only picked one of these, have three from yesterday and came home from the allotment with four more.  Just as well I like cucumber and these are so tasty and fresh.

I got the chair, table and cushions out ready for Chris but it then turned cloudy with a stiff cool breeze so we met online instead.  Oh, well . . . better luck next week.



Tuition was great fun - I do like these students.
In the afternoon I stopped off at the allotment and came home with these!


And these - with more coming on fast.


And finally, at last, we have baby runners.  Cheers!






















Today starts off with an early morning tuition session followed later on by my personal training session.  Lindsey can now have individual clients in her mini-gym which is great.  I'm looking forward to that very much.
I ought to go down the allotment and water at some point.  I gather it's going to get warmer and I don;t want things to dry out - it's all looking so lush at the moment.

I'm hoping it will be somewhat warmer and sunny today - yesterday was OK but cool-ish and it kept clouding over.  Fingers crossed!

Stay safe and well.  xx

    1. Funnily enough, I did um and ah about beef tomatoes but decided not, given the problems with lockdown and getting plants anyway. Looks like the decision was taken out of my hands. They do look rather splendid!

  2. It's all looking good! In my allotment forum on FB, quite a few people have noticed that their tomatoes and squashes/courgettes are not the same as pictured on the packet. It's rather odd!!

  3. It's definitely much warmer here today so I hope it is the same for you. The garden and all your produce looks so good, especially the corn.

    Will you keep going with the tuition during the entire summer holidays?

    1. It's quite mice. The stiff wind has died down and I think that makes a big difference really.

      I give the families the choice. It's not normal this year anyway, of course, but usually most say no thanks and one accepts.

    1. I grew some ages ago and I'm not sure why I haven't grown them since. It's quite exciting really.

  5. Yesterday was really chilly in parts. I started to cut the grass and had to come back in for a jacket.
    Bit better today, I've cut down the raspberry canes and got quite warm.
    Hope your day goes well
