And Finally….

Thursday was mostly dull. Light drizzly rain started just after lunchtime and continued into the early evening but produced a total of only 0.8mm of rainfall, hardly enough to wet the top of the soil.

It wasn't too bad though, for finally planting up the plot greenhouse with its summer tomato plants. As the dull weather kept the outside temperature down it wasn't too warm working in the greenhouse out of the drizzle.

We planted up five large growbags. Each one  has a different variety of tomato. Working around the greenhouse in a clockwise direction these are Sioux, Alicante, Brandy Boy Hybrids, Pink Wonder and Amish Gold. So far I’ve just about managed to keep a track of the sowing, germination times, potting on and planting up times for our tomato plants. I’d like to complete this by keeping cropping dates and quantities along with some sort of tastiness rating of each variety.
