My last post was a bit 'doom and gloom' so I thought I would do one on a more positive note. The greenhouse is empty now of everything but tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. I don't feel as though as I am gasping for air everytime I walk in there with every nook and cranny filled with seedlings and growing plants, waiting to be planted out.
The tomatoes are reaching great heights now and tomatoes are starting to form
After a slow start the cucumber has started to climb and has several fruits - one or two of which are getting to a good size
After announcing to the world and his wife that I have no luck with aubergines and wasn't going to bother with them again - I succumbed and bought a plant - and you can see that although it looks a bit moth-eaten, it is producing fruit - I shall just have to wait and see whether these develop to a decent sized fruit.
These are growing well in the mini-greenhouse and small fruits are beginning to form
The cuttings that I took from my original tomato plants are growing well and starting to form flowers - they are on their way to catching up with the 'mother' plants.
The greenhouse strawberries are just about finished but the ones in hanging baskets are starting to ripen so we will have a bit of continuity on the strawberry front.
These have been very slow to form fruits - I almost decided to take them indoors as it has been so cold - there are very few tomatoes on them so far - a little bit disappointing - the same goes for all the outdoor tomatoes - maybe they will catch up a bit if we have some warmer weather.
And finally although they aren't growing in the greenhouse - I thought I would show you the container peas
