Just a couple of warm days this week and my little tomato plants almost doubled in size. I potted some of them up into large pots in the greenhouse. I have found that tomatoes in pots in a greenhouse or on the sunny patio sometimes do better than those planted direct in the soil.
A frost is forecast in London tonight so these are under a layer of fleece in the greenhouse but being hardened off outside during the day.
These precious little Chilli Willy
seedlings are doing nicely. I'm looking forward to seeing how these grow....
This little cucumber plant caught my attention in the garden centre. It is a grafted plant
- that means that the top plant is the F1 hybrid Iznik
(a plentiful small cucumber) and the rootstock will have been chosen for more vigour. At present there is a baby cucumber on every single leaf joint and the plant is growing inches each day. Looks great!
