Those tomatoes look very sturdy, Fg.....perhaps when the leaves have all gone, you can use them as a caber.

Hope people don't carried away with these hanging basket sweet peas......they can be a pain to grow & look after and success with them can be patchy, depending on the weather.

How did a sweet pea thread suddenly turn into a tomato thread?

However, I would just like to add a word of caution about defoliating those tomatoes, flumpy. Leaves are a very important part of the life cycle of any plant and therefore some thought should be given to when and how many to remove.

I've always found that a good rule of thumb is 'only remove those below the trusses you are picking'.

Oh yes, for sure, FG........less is more. Over planting and thus poor air circulation will result in powdery mildew later in the season. 

Sowing sweet peas in homemade compost?

Ain't it good to have happy customers and for them to say thank you and appreciate us taking the trouble?

You're welcome, HappyGrower. Didn't intend any snub, just troubled with this elephant memory. 

I really like the monochrome shots of 'Guy' and 'The machines'.

Not sure if this is the current one, flumpy, but it's a start:

I'm not certain, but I think there's a 'seed swap' thread somewhere.....I'll have a scout around!

Hi, HappyGrower

Super shots and it shows you are obviously artistically talented, although, as I recall you've posted them before.....Great for those who haven't had the pleasure of seeing them before and it is a new thread.
