MrsG - Don't be put off by previous rubbery tomatoes. Perhaps it was simply the variety you tried, or adverse weather had affected them. Someone I know asked me what her husband should grow because he'd got a little growhouse as a present. I just said - don't grow stuff you don't like. That's the best starting point. I only grow herbs, lettuce, rocket and a few toms. I got some strawberries last autumn too. I don't have the time, space or inclination to grow lots of other stuff. Never feel you're not a gardener if you don't grow your own veg. Do what suits you and your lifestyle.
I don't do hanging baskets either
Got some paint mixed and some onto the fence. Much better colour now. Hate to think how many coats it's had to cover up the Dale Winton tangerine underneath
Bought trellis to go on it, so I need to get that painted and attached before the climbers get too big.
Roast dinner made and consumed. Daughter made Yorkshires. Very nice they were too. Cup of tea now I think.
