It’s another world. Very warm and somehow comforting; I think because of the smell, which reminds me of my grandfathers’ greenhouses, one in Scotland growing tomatoes and carnations and the other in Yorkshire, growing tomatoes and more tomatoes! Both my Grandpas would, I fear, have mildly disapproved of the exuberant (over) planting, but at least it’s more orderly than last year when the achocha completely took over!
Varieties growing (all from seed) are: Tomatoes Sungold, Noir de Crimee, Gardener’s Delight, Red Brandy Wine, Green Zebra, Caro Rich and Sweet Aperitif; Pepper Hungarian Hot Wax; Chilli Aji Delight; Melon Prescott Fond Blanc Musk (this is not doing very well) and marigold tagetes that have grown monstrously from unpromising beginnings.
Wow. Surreal and beautiful. You do your granddads proud. The most mouthwatering tomatoes I ever ate grew in the hills of Elba – in another lifetime. They were wild, crawling on the ground, and had an elongated shape. I never knew there were so many kinds.

Lovely and very orderly! I’ve just returned from 5 days away and the tomato side shoots have gone mad!
Haha, thank you 🙂 And yes, it’s amazing how quickly those little blighters shoot out – and some manage to remain invisible even after you’ve carefully gone over them and could swear you’ve picked them all out!
