Tomato Update

plants_1

Yard full of plants (mostly onions)

My plants seem to doing pretty well – I thought for a while they were all going to die. I lost 3 of my 4 baby tomato plants, but the 4th is the one front left in the photo, and that is doing very well indeed. The damp weather seems to have discouraged the aphids, which is good.

If you’re wondering about the growbags – why aren’t they flat? – apparently the tomato roots like it this way more, and you get bigger plants. This is what I hear anyway. Plus it’s a lot harder for the slugs to get at them.

That mass of green stuff at ground level is onions – they will soon be ready to dig up with any luck (and I will have loads of ’em!)
