Tomatoes from inside to out

Tomatoes from inside to out

I have to say – we do seem to be very organised this year as we don’t have a huge amount to do at the moment – usually this time of year is really busy. I am putting it down to getting everything in so early in time for the summer holidays. Several visitors to the school over the last week (both of whom have allotments) have commented on how well our tomatoes and potatoes are doing.

Anyway, on to today. Time to move the tallest tomatoes (which were starting to droop) into the greenhouse. Most of our Gardeners Delight went in along with some of the Golden Sunrise. The rest can stay on the window sill for a couple more weeks.

Vince joined us today and planted out the lettuces that Allan planted a few weeks back. They are doing really well and went into the salad bed.

I am a bit worried that there is nothing from our pumpkins yet – there is always some disaster that befalls them (last year being picked off by curious young children!) so I have my fingers firmly crossed that this will be our year!

Lettuce out too

Hi Compostwoman
Thanks for your comments! You have just given me an idea as today we have been planting out the last of our tomatoes and we have far too many. I think I will try and sell them in the playground after half term!
