but that's about all that is. These are the Tigerella variety (stripy), they already have a few flowers so hoping for a pretty early crop this year. Looking forward to finding out whether these actually taste good or are just a novelty.
Anyone grown stripy tomatoes before?
At last real progress with a couple of nice days of warm weather. All is tidy, (my flowers are on borrowed time!) and covering with fleece to warm the soil can be done. Added advantage of stopping next doors dandelions seeding all over me! Squash, (first wave) in propagator and Mark did brilliant job on the strimming. Most Tomatoes pricked out and in greenhouse. Also earlier sowings peppers- the later ones at home can catch up once I take them down.
Cleared the weeds and set up the beds - no idea what will grow - found a load of potatoes from the previous incumbent so looks like they should do well.
Thinking of innovative ways to resolve the lack of running water problem - some fairly elaborate uses of corrugated iron and drain pipe on the other plots so may follow suit.
Onions going in tonight along with chitted potatoes and carrots - going to leave the beans for a couple of weeks so as to avoid all frosts but doing well in the Kitchen window.
Bagged up 15 bags of free horse manure. So I'm ready to mulch my asparagus bed on the best lunar cycle day for spreading compost 2nd March. Still pulling parsnips and picking kale. Had bacon, mushroom and blanched kale omelette for tea and yesterday Kale Salad dressed in a balsamic vinegar dressing, apparently kale is very good for you.
