Partly because of our impending few days away at my Mum’s and partly because of my recent acquisition of tomato and pepper plants from the Golfer’s Friend I have been looking again at the contents of the greenhouse. The latter have been potted on, along with a second sowing of Gardeners’ Delight, but all will stay in the greenhouse for the moment apart from the ‘currant’ tomatoes which were planted in baskets and hung on the back of the hot border wall (purple sprouting broccoli below). More sweet peas have been planted out, along with the original plug plants I bought to take cuttings from, and some nasturtium and calendula have been given away but still leaving more than sufficient seedlings to brighten up the hot borders. I aim to get the rest of the seedlings either planted out or potted on further before we go away, and will speak nicely to the neighbour who checks on our chickens and ask him to water the tomatoes in our absence. Unfortunately the nearest water butt is practically empty again, after being utilised on a daily basis to nurture the contents of the greenhouse.
