Overgrown Garden in France

It seems the West of England has had the good weather, it was only 15° today and raining. My outdoor tomatoes are showing signs of blight. When we were in England and while family was staying the last week the weeds grew like mad, especially in the well manured veg garden. Been weeding the flowers, was going to start on the veggies today but was asked out to lunch then son rang, have new baby granddaughter so going to south of Orleans.

My son No 1 (who ate worms while I weeded when he was very small) rang today. His wife had their 2nd daughter this morning, my 8th grandchild!

Overgrown Garden in France

Hello Jap3, I'm the lady who lives in France that OL mentioned. I didn't see this as I was on holiday in England, didn't have time or internet connection to read everything. Saint Yrieux is about 50 mins from me, I'm about 20 mins north east of Périgueux.

We moved to this house in 1990, no garden then, farmyard and field and unlived in for 6 years. But I was younger then! It was hard work, especially as we are in Perigord Blanc, known for it's limestone. Good luck with your garden.

Morning all.

Verdun said "tomato leaves need to be dry to avoid blight.......blight needs damp leaves to take hold so in a GH blight should, in theory, not exist" which is exactly what I thought, yet somewhere on this forum people were advising misting the leaves. Never heard that one before. Think mine have blight because it's been mild and damp instead of the usual hot and sunny.

It looks so beautiful now, I remember the hedge too. You've worked very hard.

What do you do for drainage in a jug, has it got a hole in the bottom?

Blossom end rot isn't a disease it's a disorder from lack of water of irregular watering so it's not catching. Some of the first courgettes always fall off or go brown at the ends then they romp away. My cucumbers never do very well. Strawberries are best in the second year, but need netting against birds. My OH mowed down my young pear tree, didn't even notice it in the grass! But when it all works it's great!
