Update on last weekend’s antics

We had some glorious weather last Saturday - lovely blue skies and sunshine. So we took the opportunity to move some of our vegetable plants outside, and to pot some others up. We've got the crops we're growing so far up against the wall to protect them from the elements, but we'll probably move them... Continue Reading →

Frost bite…literally!

We had sown a couple of tomatoes, Yellow Mimi, earlier than our other tomatoes in the hope of some early cropping tomatoes. Having patiently waited until the plants had flowers starting to form in their centres, they were ready to be potted on to their final pots. We wait until the tomatoes are starting to...

Pricking out some of our tomatoes, and sowing a few more varieties!

They're growing on quite well in their 3" pots and are starting to form their first true leaves. As we... Continue Reading →

We'll come on to celebrate some of our favourite bits in a future post. Our first one relates to peppers. Although we've just about... Continue Reading →

Early cropping tomatoes

We've been growing a variety of tomatoes for a couple of years now called Yellow Mimi. It's a yellow, cherry tomato that we originally came across as a result of our membership with The National Vegetable Society. As part of our membership each year, the Society's sponsors provide some free packets of seeds to members.... Continue Reading →
