How to grow tomatoes from seed - Heinz 3402 variety

Posted: 28/03/2015 at 09:23

I think the length and warmth of the summer is more important than pinching off tips. I live in France and I pinch off the tips of the tomatoes in the greenhouse when they hit the roof and they all ripen.

Morning all.

Son not coming to lunch after all, baby had a bad night, probably teething, and they are too tired.

I'm afraid I never go to village choucroute (sauerkraut, fermented cabbage dish ), can't stand the stuff. Hope Charlie enjoys the evening though.

The garden looks very wet this morning.

I do as Mollis and get a smaller second flush.

Picking a Pair of Pruners!

Posted: 27/03/2015 at 23:25

They are my favourites too, I have 3 pairs, but the oldest are over 30 years old and cut as well as the newer ones.

Think I like Lizzie or Liz best. Really Elizabeth. When I started being Busy-Lizzie there wasn't that fungal disease! I hope they don't become a thing of the past.

Lesley, GW is always at 9.30pm here, French time an hour ahead.

3 days for your passport Panda - amazing! The right job will turn up, it's just the waiting that's a pain in the neck.

Mice in the compost bin

Posted: 27/03/2015 at 19:24

Compost is fine to use, but (I hope I won't shock you) I use mouse traps when mice are were I'd rather they weren't. They breed quickly and I don't want to use poison because of other birds and animals who may eat them.

Of course it is, Hostafan, think I'll have a glass of Prosecco.
