clean garden

Hi, Lynne,

It can be hard work, but it's nice after the works done, to look over a tidy garden. I always clear my paths when the snow comes, must be the only person along the terrace who does that though, but then I can walk up the garden path without fear of slipping when the grounds frozen.   

What's the weather like in your area?

Nice morning driving to work, the sky was blue with white clouds and I caught the birds feeding first thing in the garden which always cheers me up for the day ahead at work.

I've a new feeder which is absolutely rubbish. It seems to leak seeds onto the ground. It was one of the more expensive one's too, decided to branch out from the cheaper plastic one's, that'll teach me. 

Talkback: Tomatoes, aubergines and peppers

I don't grow stuff like cabbage and cauli, caterpillars love them and they take up far to much room. I keep saying I won't grow Brussels again, grew them this year and the caterpillars had a feast.

In  GH -Peppers were a disaster but there's still one plant left with large green peppers on, they refuse to go red...I live in hope.... Aubergines did well, there were a lot of medium sized fruits on about four plants.Chillies did well too.    

 

Tomato growing tips

I had late blight in the GH this year, it didn't seem to effect the crop though as I took off the leaves affected as soon as they appeared and most of the plants has well developed fruit on them before blight attacked them. I'm going to change th soil in the GH bed before planting again next year..

Don't know whether it was coincidence but the plants in the bed seemed to be affected first and then the blight spread to neighbouring plants in pots on the ground. The one's on the bench seemed less affected, they were cherry varieties - xmas grape and floridity .

What's for tea?

I fancied pizza all week...but resisted temptation... you really can't make them better than a take-away....my home toppings are good but I can't make a base I now buy a thin crispy pizza with little topping then add my own     

Tuna bake and salad for tea.

Does anyone know when Comet are actually closing, I'd like an Amerian fridge freezer but they're a tab bit expensive, me thinks this could be an opportunity to get one half price currently stuff is only 10% off at the store near us though.
