Good morning all  - looking forward to some lovely fresh bread/croissants from Wintersong for breakfast 

Daisy, now remember, only buy sensible stuff that you'll use ................ 

Overcast here this morning, and a cooling breeze coming off the North Sea and heading for our garden ....... the thermometer says 15C but it feels cooler - hopefully the breeze will drop and it'll be nice enough to sit out on the terrace a bit later

Tomatoes

Tomato leaves usually curl because of temperature fluctuations.

 However, if tomato leaves roll inwards from the sides to the centre, this is usually due to over-watering.

worms

Hello James

Incorporate as much organic matter as you can into the soil, farmyard manure, leaf mould, garden compost etc  - you'll find that worms will soon appear in your garden.

When we came here the soil was dry and thin and there were very few worms.  Three years of doing the above and whenever I turn any soil there are several worms to be seen. 

Whether your soil is thin and gritty or heavy clay, incorporating organic material will improve the fertility and drainage and increase the worm population.

Good luck 

HELLO FORKERS!
