tomato plants in containers all going pale

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 09:50

I don't start thinking about making green tomato chutney until mid September.  When the nights start getting a lot cooler I pick what green tomatoes I have left and they come indoors onto the windowsills or into an empty drawer with a ripe banana.

Only the ones that haven't changed colour after than are used for chutney. 

A Day Out

No, a very pertinent and unsettling message has appeared on the right hand side of my screen where the ads would be.

I can only think that this is a 'pop up' advert or promotion which can appear if you write or search on a 'trigger' subject.  I get a lot of ads at the moment re sporting injuries ever since I googled for info re wrist supports for a soccer playing friend.  

These can feel as if you're being personally targeted by someone with knowledge about you, but it is merely an annoying automated system which can be circumvented by downloading one of the free Adblocker services which are freely available.  

I must get around to updating mine

Full English with or without mushrooms/black pudding is ready, one egg or two folks.

Full veggie English also ready

If you want dippy eggs, how do you want them and how many?

Who wants scrambled eggs on toast with chives?

Pancakes and maple syrup anyone?

Juices available and more coffee anyone?
