More rain

Wednesday was mostly cloudy and mild. The sun made a few brief appearances throughout the day. Early evening we had a couple of heavy showers giving us another 3mm of rainfall. More rain is forecast for Friday so perhaps our rainfall is starting to return to a more normal pattern.

My tomato plant growing in an air pot is doing well. It’s clearly too early to draw any conclusions as the plant still has to form enough roots to fill the plot. The plant does need more water as some water escapes from the holes in the pot when watering. Hopefully standing the pot in a tray will help to keep the soil moist. I can see that I need to remove a few side shoots before they get too large.

The tomato variety is Blondkopfchen.
