Good morning, everyone. After a dull start yesterday, out came the sun, up went the temperature and it turned out to be a beautiful summer day. Lovely after such unpleasant, non-summery weeks as we have been having. It's looking promising this morning too although auntie Beeb indicates it might turn a bit dull later on.
Well, yesterday was a good day. The Morrisons order was fine; there were some subs but they were appropriate so no complaints and the fruit looks in good condition too.
Then I met Jeff down the allotment. I was quite heartbroken when I got there - after all my hard work earlier in the year, it looked a right mess.
Then I looked again and thought maybe it wasn't so bad after all.
The tomatoes (between the broadies and the corn) needed a lot of side shooting and tying up, but they are coming on - every plant has one truss at least and I'm happy with that, given it isn't the ideal place for them.
This bagful only scratches the surface of what there is to pick so I'll be handing some round and freezing some too. Last year there weren't enough to freeze so I'm very happy how they have done.
Have a great day and I hope it's nice where you are too. xx
