Beef tomatoes

Posted: 26/10/2012 at 14:39

Hello.  Every year about October/November, I take a bought tomato, take the seeds out, place in a brown envelope and put in a draw until January.  Then I take out the seeds and place one in a pot and put on my window shelf until the frost goes and then I place it in a bigger pot and put it outside.  I usually grow two plants.  This year I decided to grow beef tomatoes from seeds I had from a tomato I had bought.  Everything was going well until it rained, rained and rained again.  I only got six beef tomatoes on the plant.  So, I've decided that in January/February, I intend to buy a tomato growing greenhouse (plastic).  And we'll see if the rain can penetrate that!

I've got a black frog in my pond.  Because the pond is small, last winter the water froze with the snow, at that time, there were no frogs in it.  So in the next couple of days, I intend to empty the pond of water, catch the frog and give it to a neighbour who has a bigger pond.
