Here we go again


I got so fed up looking at the horrible, sad, sickly looking Tomato Plants so out they came , put out of their misery in one fast swoop with the secateurs , actually im exaggerating just a bit , there was only one plant left in the Greenhouse the rest had been chopped a few weeks ago , this weather has been awful , I think I got one Tomato this year !! the Cucumber plant was doing ok but I didnt see the point of keeping everything on hold for one plant so out it came as well !
The bench , plant pots , everything was brought out in to the garden and I washed the Greenhouse from top to bottom , the bench and pots were all washed and the pasting table put up for all the seed trays , its nice to see it all so clean and tidy ( if only I was so keen on housework !! ).
Ive started off some Fucshia cuttings , im going to need a lot more though as ive already got a few orders for hanging baskets for next year , it made me feel good to know people have enjoyed their hanging baskets so much they want them again .One lady has asked me to make her up 3 hanging bags , I did tell her they take A LOT of watering but she seemed okay about that .So here we begin all over again for next year with cuttings , never a dull moment eh ?? Happy gardening !

Hi, well you may have made up my mind for me, too. I have 2 cucumber plants which are doing really well in the greenhouse, but the tomatoes are useless. I think I will at least get rid of those, but i still hold out hope for the peppers and aubergines. The best things outdoors here have been the courgettes and beetroots, but the sweetcorn is been truly amazing!. Best wishes - david

I gave up on my tomatoes a couple of weeks ago, they were outside ones, and haven't stood a chance with the rain, plus the fact, the potatoes got blight and passed it on. The same with the cuc's, and now the courgettes seem to be succumbing to something, they only get so big then start to rot. I'm going to try again next year and hope I make a better job of it lol
