Tumblr is a blogging platform.  Monty Don used it at one time.

If you search Tumblr gardening you'll get pictures/blogs about gardening that have been posted by bloggers. 

tomato plants in containers all going pale

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.

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

BBC couldn't afford it - sports programmes cost too much - it's ridiculous.
