In my series of posts looking at the difference a month makes to the garden, I’m pleased that the main section is looking greener again, now that the poppies have all been removed. I actually think poppies have a negative impact on tomato plants, going on how the tomatoes in close proximity to the poppies seemed to be stunted by the latter.
Anyway, though you might not be able to see the tomato fruit forming on the vines, they are definitely there, and I am excited to see the crop that I end up with. There are also peppers forming – a bit late on the day but, when such happens, I always console myself with the fact that the plants are good compost heap fodder.
As for the herb garden, I realise I need to pick and dry the sage before it is too late. That is, however, looking bushier than a month ago. And we’ve been enjoying the borage flowers, even though you’ve got to be quick to get them.
Happy September, everyone!
