A year for experiments? just in case there isn't a next one...
This year like many of us I have had some health problems. However despite a strategically inopportune hospital visit some Kind Persons I didn’t realise I had in my life, decided the tomato and pepper plants (we tend not to grow from seed here as I have found) that I had previously bought and were getting stunted, shouldn’t go to waste so hey presto the Marmande tomatoes etc. got put in the ground and the peppers I’d never managed to grow before got potted on.
A celebration of how adversity brings gardeners together! Many thanks to all who have helped me… The Marmande tomatoes are currently bending their custom-hewn stakes and I’m surely I’ll shortly be frantically searching for tomate recipes, and I’ve never had thym and lavender as good!
Nevertheless, you do get some unexpected results (see attached photo)!
Errm did this one “turn left at Calais” ? – a satnav misdirection? The crib sheet (translated from the French, Doux Poivrons (sweet peppers)) says these plants will produce long, strong fruits
