Wot a scorcher Absolutely stunning day. Still hot
Re tomatoes. Yes Italophile is the absolute expert. No doubt of that. Such a lot of advice about tomatoes and I'm far from an expert. I try now to keep leaves dry when watering. To water roots only. However, misting at lunchtimes, if possible, is good practice too I think to help with pollination. This allows leaves to dry quickly though. I foliar feed with seaweed and skimmed milk for reasons that make sense to me. Also odd Epsom salt spray. last two years my crops have been much better and disease free because I have completely chamged my regime. I also remove lower leaves regularly. (no doubt I will have worst crop ever now, such is life )
Where is Italophile ? He sent me some seed that germinated well....hoping for a crop but I neglected them earlier and they are late.
Oh thanks! Loads of "hugs" today. Nice
Think my mum will be prescribed something to help with her depression and anxiety. Coincidentally,I spoke with someone who has been through some awful times lately and stress. She was prescribed the same tablets and says they are brilliant so sounds promising. My mum said I have an "admirer" in the hospital. Said I was so tall and "beautiful". My head swelled. Turns out it was an old patient with some issues.....prob should have gone to specsavers. Haven't been called beautiful since I chatted to myself as I shaved this morning As my niece says, I " attract all the nutters". Ah well, back to the drawing board and reality. Ha ha.
Off to take my dog soon....did I say it's scorching? Oh yes! I did
