This evening I had to rush back to work, so whilst in town I thought a trip to our favourite Chinese restaurant was in order. The mangetout were delicious and I decided then and there that the first job back home would be to try and salvage the badly nibbled plants with one of my big cloche.
The second job was to plant out another tomato plant – and cover that with a cloche, too. The pumpkin it had previously been protecting must surely have hardened off enough now. This you can just see poking its head round the compost bin.
I think I am running out of space for anything else, but we shall see. There are another nine tomato plants as well as a pumpkin and several cucumber plants to find a home for, so maybe some growbags are in order…..
