Good morning, everyone. It's nice and early, the window in my bedroom at Dad's is wide open and the cool, fresh air is flooding in. It's lovely. It looks as if the sun will show his face at some point and the forecast here is for a dry and dull day. Back home, they're supposed to get a bit of rain this afternoon - obviously we are a bit too far west to catch any here.
Even a bit of rain would be good; it's not been warm and dry for long enough to parch the soil and a few inches down it is still nice and damp so light rain would be great.
It felt quite hot and a bit humid yesterday but, all the same, it was a good day. Chris came over at ten bearing gifts - not five, but six, tomato plants. They are all of the one type, golden crown, and I looked it up to discover that it is considered an excellent tomato, sweet, juice and delicious. Good oh! There wasn't room down the allotment for even one of them so they are not in the garden and I have my full complement of tomatoes for this year. What with what's in the bed and what's in pots there are twenty plants at home and eight down the allotment so, fingers crossed, we won't go short. Also, they seem to be a nice mix of colours, shapes and sizes.
I took a photo of the new plants but it's on my desktop and I'm on my laptop for a few day's of course. Or no, hang on - I posted it to Chris on Facebook. Maybe I can copy it from there . . .
