Isn't it great to pick and eat veg straight from the garden.  We've had two pickings of broad beans already, and we're having the first spring cabbage with toad in the hole for supper this evening - doesn't get much better does it?

Tomato plant leaves turning brown - should I pick them out?

Posted: 30/05/2015 at 14:36

I think this may be sun-scorch - although hardened off as well as possible, it may be that they were not toughened up sufficiently to cope with some of the spells bright sunlight we've had (goodness knows we've had little of it in May until recently). 

I think I'd pick off the worst affected leaves and leave the rest.  I think they'll be fine

Have I got an orchid???

Posted: 30/05/2015 at 13:38

Definately an orchid - my wildflower bible (Keble Martin) says Dactylorhiza maculata   commonly called Heath Orchid

Apparently  they do hybridise with other Dactylorhiza and there are various sub-species.

How very exciting
