Well that and Red Cherry, tomatoes that is. I planted both this year as I couldn't remember which one had been the best. Well Gardener's Delight was certainly the best. I also looks like there may be some blight on the Red Cherry, so I will not be growing them again, although the tomatoes themselves were lovely and red and small. The Gardener's Delight has lots of nice shaped and tasty tomatoes, they are growing better and no blight.
We still need more sun to ripen the green tomatoes but they are turning. Rain is forecast over the next week but hopefully we will have some sunshine too.
I also tried growing some Loofahs, the plants are not very tall and there are quite a few fruits (?) on them but they seem to have stopped swelling and are turning yellow, except for this bendy one. I don't think it has been hot enough for them although I did keep them in the greenhouse. May be next year I will plant the cucumbers in there, they haven't done well at all this year. It's odd as I always grown mine outdoors even though they are a greenhouse type, they usually do very well. I think it just proves the weather has been all wrong this year.
Now I think this is Radicchio. I planted a load of seeds but the snails & slugs have had most of them, well all but this one. It's greener than I thought it would be, maybe they get redder with age. Of course it may not be what I think it is, I will have to wait and see.
I had to rescue this little cheeky chappy. I knew he was in the garden, whilst sitting on my back door step I could hear him/her croaking and couldn't figure out where it was. Well today I found it, trapped in the bucket. It's now back near the pond.
I'm not sure how much I will be able to do down there over the next week but I would really like to crack on with the patio area. There are a couple of skips on the way home with some rubble in, I might raid them for foundations although the few I laid directly on the soil seem quite steady.
