It was a sad moment when I took out one of the tomato plants this afternoon. But it had to done in order to make way for the compost bin.
The bin is too heavy to lift with its contents still inside, so these had to come out first. A bit of a messy job but it certainly meant I worked up an appetite for lunch!
I refrained from having any of the tomatoes – well, most of them are still green, anyway – but it’s quite a large crop from a small plant.
Now, I’ve got a patch of spare ground where I plan to plant the garlic bulbils from this year’s garlic crop. It’s the first time I’ve had umbels on my garlic, so I’m excited to see if in three years’ time I will get a crop from the bulbils.
