In between the raindrops...


By waddy


Went out again today, during a lull in the rain to see how things are doing. Despite the cold, things are still popping up and flowering…

Some tomato plants I bought at the weekend.

Lettuce ‘Salad Bowl’ germinated!

Happy Gardening…but wrap up warm!

What variety of tomatoes are you growing?
They look nice and healthy. Will you be growing them on
in the green house or outside ?
Isn't it nice to see the gardens come alive.
My magnolia and camellia have just opened their first buds.

That reminds me to start my tom pepper etc seeds off. they will be in a heated propagator as it is too cold for them up here.

Your tomatoes are so big compared to mine Julia. When do you plant them out? or do you? What is that yellow submerged plant?

Well done Waddy with the lettuce seedlings - I set some Tomato seeds yesterday they were Moneymaker - I must set some lettuce - I have a visiting hedgehog so hopefully there won't be so many slugs this year - Jane

Hi everyone, thank you for your comments. The tomatoes are just 6 plants. 3 Moneymaker and 3 Alicante. My greenhouse is only small, so I don't have room for any more. I've tried lots of different varieties in the past, but I think I'm better off sticking with the tried and tested ones.

Paul, the submerged plant is Caltha Palustris (Marsh Marigold) the first of the pond plants to flower since the new pond was put in last year.

Jane how wonderful to have a visiting hog! Do you feed him cat food I wonder?

Some lovely splashes of colour there,Julia..I have one lone Camellia flower too,as yet :o) your tomato plants look in good health ,and they all are tried and tested varieties,so you should have a good crop ..if you don't eat them every time you pass by ! Save some to have with those Lettuces :o)

That's the idea Sandra...but I can't promise as I love tomatoes straight from the plant, yummy!
