I’ve finished Week Two of my MOOC on soil early, so I’m a little lost. That said, there is plenty of observing of my own to do in the garden.
Every time I go past the apple tree, I have a look to see how many apples are forming. The blossom has almost gone and it’s not just the petals which are falling to the ground. However, I doubt the tree could cope if every flower fertilised, although I am hoping for more than the eleven or twelve I got last year.
A flower which is on the advent is on the tomato plant which I’m putting outside to harden off.
I’m amazed by the plant, as I’ve never managed to grown one so big before planting out before. On the other hand, it is nowhere near as robust as the ones in the shed. It was quite floppy until I put a stake in but hopefully over the next week it will gain more strength.
