So many people this year having trouble with their tomatoes not ripening, mine included. Its got to be a weather thing and lack of heat at the optimal times. I'm hanging in there with mine for a bit longer, although I've today gone out and taken off any trusses with really small immature fruit so it can concentrate on ripening (hopefully) and not growing. I was advised on here other day that if thst they still haven't ripened when the temp drops to the low teens daily to just bring them inside to finish off. Good Luck Lesa

EllieL - if only it was anything that wriggles or creeps lol I scream like a girl if a moth comes anywhere near, I don't do spiders, I'm not keen on wasps and bees make me nervous! Honest to god I am the wimpiest wimp that ever lived lol Why the heck did I move to somewhere so green and bug laden?! hehe

Hard to believe the little beggars can get through the nets. Guess we're going to be a nation of loony tune people running around our gardens swatting and squishing lol

I don't find they help much fairygirl in spite of the fact that they're supposed to be insulating but then we've only done one year here and had to cope with the coldest winter in 50 years so I might find it more insulating next year, fingers crossed
