Holey snail

I used to have a racing snail, but when I took its shell off it became a little sluggish!!!! As many of you quote.....I'll get me coat!!

At the moment Bizzie, I have just one big fat tomato that is just beginning to go red. I had a bit  of a problem with 'blossom drop'(me flowers fell off!), but Kef sorted me out with some sound advice, and my plants are now covered in very promising flowers. So, fingers crossed! Pasta sauce was my aim for them Fruitcake.I might have to look out for"Cream Sausage" Marion. Oh yes, and hanging baskets for cherry tomatoes!!

Very hot here too-all the seeds that I sowed on Sunday have germinated already!!

The tomatoes look good!! I want to grow some black ones next year. I have plum ones at the moment, and my first one is just starting to turn red.

Watered everything when I came in from work today-water butts definitely full after all the storms on Saturday. Made Rhubarb and Ginger Jam with my home grown Rhubarb, which is going bonkers this year! Picking Redcurrants for Jelly to keep for Christmas. Had my first Carrots of the season-love this time of year when we start to get tasting stuff! What is your favourite food that you have grown so far this year Marion?

Had heavy rain here in Stoke-on-trent this morning after a big thunderstorm last night. I think everything has survived-the sweetcorn is definitely looking happy Marion! Came down in stair-rods, just as I decided to plant some seeds, so it was 'garage gardening'! I planted some Lettuce seeds-a trial pack from DT seeds(I feel a bit like you with your Mr.Fothergill trial Marion!) and some late Carrots, also called Marion. So I just had to let you know! Your pictures are lovely- I hope that you do well with your Bristol In Bloom. Becoming a bit of a seedaholic I think-saw a gardening magazine with free seeds, and before I knew it, I had sent off for another half dozen free packets! That's why I got the free pack of trial seeds. I now have a box full of seeds for next year, and a despairing husband.

Hi All from Wales!
