It feels like the year is speeding by, I can’t believe it’s June already! We are well and truly heading into summer (yay!). With the warmer weather and longer days everything that has been planted seems to be making the most of it. And so do I. One of My favourite things about summer is that when I get home from work I have time to walk to the allotment and if the weather isn’t as summery I can potter in the greenhouse 😊
I spent Monday night sorting my greenhouse, potting up chillies (see my last post) and transplanting tomatoes and cucumbers into grow bags. I noticed that a couple of my tomato plants have already got a few flowers. Some have even got super tiny little tomatoes. To help these along, I’ve picked out any center shoots, leaving only the main stem and the main side shoots.
Now these have started to flower I will also start to feed these a tomato feed each week, along with my aubergine which is also flowering. Hopefully we’ll be enjoying home grown tomatoes soon 😊
