Well it is now mid-summer and time to update progress in the garden. Despite summer being the promise of tomatoes, I planted late and so now we wont harvest any significant tomato crop until summer is well and truely over. Funny how putting plants in late doesn't seem to cause too much grief but waiting and waiting for tomatoes is agonising. Those cardboard things are everywhere in the shops.....I do buy them but I'll be glad when I don't need to.
Below is my very first tomato harvest for this season. Can you see it? Let me help. In the egg container are two baby cherry tomatoes. Unfortunately someone has been nibbling on the very first ripe tomato. Sigh. Must share.
In the harvest basket keeping the tomatoes company are: 2 hen eggs, 1 duck egg (did I tell you I moved two noisy ducks down to the garden?), one cucumber and two zucchini (prentending like there aren't hundreds on the vine), tap fixings, Ho Mi cultivation tool (my favourite garden tool!), corn seeds, gloves, pink baling twine, mesh bags (what for?? who know, may be useful), stuff.
And here's the "Looking North" view of the tomato bed...
The "oops pitfalls of close plantings" view - no room on the path that separates the corn bed from the tomato bed.
And finally, the view of the tomato bed looking south....
And just in case you were wondering, here are the photos taken from early December.
